Georiga History:   Atlanta | Geogia Coast | Savannah

The coastal isles of Georgia are a string of lush, subtropical barrier islands meandering lazily down the state's Atlantic coast from Savannah to the Florida border. The islands have a long history of human habitation; Native American relics have been found here that date from about 2500 BC. The four islands known as the Golden Isles -- Little St. Simons, Sea, St. Simons, and Jekyll islands -- are great vacation spots. The best way to appreciate the barrier islands' rare ecology is to visit Sapelo and Cumberland islands or take a guided tour.

Each coastal isle has a distinct personality, shaped by its history and ecology. All the Golden Isles but Little St. Simons are connected to the mainland by bridges in the vicinity of Brunswick; these are the only coastal isles accessible by automobile. Little St. Simons Island, a privately owned retreat with guest accommodations, is reached by a launch from St. Simons. Sapelo Island is accessible by ferry from the visitor center just north of Darien. The Cumberland Island National Seashore is reached by ferry from St. Marys. About 50 miles inland is the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, which has a character all its own. All Georgia beaches are in the public domain.
