Things to Do for Two
Stargazing is one of the best ways to start exploring the night sky! This serene pastime lets you dream big and explore the vastness of the entire universe!
What to Bring…
- A red LED flashlight is friendly to both sea turtles and astronomers. Ordinary white light flashlights are not permitted on Jekyll beaches from May to October.
- A stargazing app lets you point your smartphone at the sky and identify objects. Options include Sky Guide, SkyView, and Night Sky. Be sure to use your dimmest phone setting.
- A blanket or towel will save your neck.
- Binoculars (optional) are easy to bring along and, as a bonus, can be used for bird-watching during the day.
