St. Simons Island Tourism
St. Simons Island is the jewel of four barrier islands comprising Georgia's Golden Isles, a southern coastal region just north of Jacksonville, Florida. Fishing, golfing, boating, biking and sunbathing on sandy beaches are among the favorite pastimes of residents and tourists alike.


Enjoy an active lifestyle year-round on this welcoming island. Popular pastimes include the area's three golf clubs, deep-sea fishing, canoeing, kayaking and sailing. Or rent bicycles and meander through the island's miles of picturesque bike trails.


Shrimp boats, sea turtles and dolphins can be found off of the island's miles of golden beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. Catamarans, sailboats, kayaks and surfboards are available for rent.


Climb the 129 steps of the landmark St. Simons Lighthouse, built in 1872. Your reward is a breathtaking view of the island. The Saint Simons Trolley tour also includes stops at historic Fort Frederica and Christ Church.


From a summertime high in the 80s to a moderate 50 degrees Fahrenheit in the heart of winter, this Georgia barrier island awaits the outdoor traveler with year-round charm.


Check into the area's motels, hotels, condos and bed-and-breakfast accommodations in all price ranges. A good place to start your comparison shopping is at

Nice easy flat trail that leads to beautiful red rocks.
Stunning hike but extremely steep and tiring! Bring plenty of water.
