Welcome to Jekyll Island

Jekyll Island, a small barrier island on Georgia’s coast, is surrounded by salt marshes, an expansive oceanfront, and enjoys one of the last accessible, intact ancient maritime forests. It is a peaceful coastal habitat situated within the Golden Isles. The story of Jekyll Island has captured imaginations for generations. From sea turtles to driftwood skeletons to historic cottages — every path leads to a unique discovery. Despite its unassuming façade – a state park seven miles long, a mile-and-a-half wide, and lacking a single traffic light – Jekyll Island has a legacy of entertaining its guests. With five distinct beaches, 63 holes of award-winning golf, and a water park for kids of all ages, there’s something for every kind of explorer. Jekyll Island boasts the Southeast’s only oceanfront convention center south of New Jersey, eight hotels of varying size and price point, shopping – everything you need and nothing you don’t, and a variety of restaurants. Whether you’re hosting an intimate gathering of 20 or entertaining a crowd of 2,000, Jekyll Island is the destination for your group, regardless of its size or budget.
