Jekyll Island Beaches 

St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island beaches are currently closed following social distancing recommendations. Please see beach closure details and our full list of updates here.

There are 10 miles of beaches on Jekyll Island, the southernmost island in the Golden Isles. That means there are endless ways to enjoy hours upon hours of time along the sandy and sunny shores! Watch the sunrise from the hauntingly iconic Driftwood Beach and end the day with a sunset picnic at St. Andrews Beach, the only west-facing beach in the Golden Isles. 

Jekyll Island beaches feature rich habitats and are home to many types of wildlife. With numerous nature activities for the animal-lover, you'll have the opportunity to spot coastal birds, go on a dolphin tour or learn about our local sea turtles
