Visiting Jekyll Island


Few places on earth are more inviting.

From our sprawling beaches to our historic ruins, Jekyll Island is a beautiful blend of serenity and discovery.

Situated within the chain of the Golden Isles, we’re just a few miles from St. Simons Island, Sea Island and Brunswick. As a State Park, Jekyll Island is a coastal haven where nature and humans peacefully co-exist.

From the moment you see our turtle crossing signs, you’ll know you’ve arrived somewhere special. A canopy of live oaks will draw you in. Stories of lavish lawn parties will pique your curiosity. Driftwood skeletons will forever be etched in your memory.

Whether it’s through an ancient maritime forest or along our newly updated oceanfront promenade, every path leads to a unique experience you’ll only find here.

Vote Driftwood Beach for “Best Beach” and Jekyll Island as “Best Island” before voting ends on June 30.
