Georgia's Enchanted Islands

Our state’s hundred miles of coastline include more than a dozen islands and 400,000 acres of salt marsh—representing a third of the salt marsh along the entire Eastern Seaboard. Our shores are home to 71 priority animal species and 91 high-priority plant species. Even our most developed islands, like Jekyll and St. Simons, have preserved some of their wild spaces. Whether you stay in a luxury resort or camp out in a tent, prepare to be awed by natural wonders.
