Where Every Hour is Golden
Nestled on the Georgia coast, midway between Savannah, GA, and Jacksonville, FL, lie four beautiful barrier islands—St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island, Little St. Simons Island—and the mainland city of Historic Brunswick. Pristine stretches of marshland, punctuated by small islands known as hammocks, define the breathtaking landscape and create the appearance of a continuous stretch of land reaching out to the barrier islands.
Miles of serene beaches turn golden at sunset, and an endless labyrinth of waterways winds through vibrant marshlands. A place to stroll, to paddle and to savor, this is the Golden Isles.
Where did the Golden Isles get its name?
The Golden Isles is a place well named. Dating back to the coast's earliest explorers, the Golden Isles has a landscape and legacy that is, in every way, golden. One needs only to witness a gorgeous sunrise over the ocean or bask in the beauty of the sun setting westward beyond the mainland to know the namesake of this stretch of Georgia’s coast.
The color gold prevails here; in the hues of our beautiful sandy beaches, in the warmth of the summer’s sun, in the shades that paint the vast marsh grasses in winter, and in the rich treasures that are experienced here, year-round, by residents and visitors.
