Water Fun

Nine Miles of Jekyll Island Beach

Jekyll Island Beach near St. Simon's Island

Swim, stroll, sunbath or beachcomb. The fun and discoveries stretch the length of Jekyll Island’s nine miles of ribbon-smooth, unspoiled beaches. Look for sand dollars, watch for dolphins, have a picnic, fly a kite, see shrimp boats, enjoy the solitude or build a sandcastle on the shore. From the spectacular beauty of Driftwood Beach on the north end, to the majestic dunes and undisturbed expanses of the north end, Jekyll Island beaches are among the most beautiful on the eastern seaboard.
