St. Simons Island is sometimes described as a little piece
of paradise. Scarcely known outside Georgia, it is quite
possibly the best kept secret along the coastal Southeast
The island's majestic entrance over miles of unspoiled marshland was memorialized by Sidney Lanier in his
poem The Marshes of Glynn. It's a place where an unpretentious low country meets the great ocean ... where
huge tidal changes breathe life into the grassy expanse flourishing in wildlife
Somewhere in between you
will discover the magic of
St. Simons Island. Upon
arrival, visitors are
enveloped by a feeling of
calm amidst ancient
moss-draped oaks standing
alongside glorious palms
and tall southern pines.
The beach at St. Simons Island is like no other.
As the 7-foot tide shifts from high to low, it
pulls the shoreline 1/2 mile out to sea
uncovering a breathtaking system sandbars
and shoals
Development is largely unseen along the north end of the beach where an abundant shrub forest has been
protected and allowed to expand naturally. Acres of young dune fields nurture sensitive Sea Oats while
thousands of shore birds migrate from one sand bar to the next with the receding tide
