The Golden Isles offers a multitude of activities to fill your day with either adventure or relaxation. If you're looking to get your heart pumping, take to the beach with a paddleboard lesson or a day of charter fishing.
If you're in search of serenity, join a kayak tour through the peaceful marshes of Glynn, saddle up for a guided horseback ride or enjoy a quiet bike ride around one of the islands. Of course, there is always the opportunity to relax on the beach and do nothing at all. Plan your trip around the activities below.
