Enjoy the islandís 10 miles of unspoiled beaches swimming, sunbathing or letting the waves lap across your feet while taking a sunset stroll along the shoreline.

Both the history and nature of Jekyll Island offers great opportunities to explore.

The island is home to a wonderful array of birds and very birdwatcher friendly. And a visit to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, to learn about the conservation and rehabilitation of these turtles, is not something to be missed. The center is opened from March 1, 2009 to November 30, 2009.
