If you are in a Georgia state of mind or just trying to find somewhere to go for that long awaited summer beach vacation you've come to the right place. I've at one time or another visited all of these beaches with the exception of Cumberland Island which is on my bucket list.
This island offers beaches, woodlands and many fun water activities for the whole family. Enjoy tours of the marsh, dolphin watching and sea-turtle walks as well as bird-watching and the Summer Waves Water Park. Jekyll Island boasts pubs, diners, bistros, snack shops and fine dining as well as hotels, cottages, campgrounds and the Harbor Marina.

Tybee Island is perfect for a family get-away. Kick back with bird-watchers, movie stars and good ol' boys. Join the fun in a Prate Raid, explore museums and visit an old lighthouse. Did I mention the food? Kick back, kick up your heels and relax or just go nuts and enjoy this beautiful little island located just 20 minutes from Savannah Georgia.

This is one of Americas most pristine and seductive islands. You won't find any water parks here as this little slice of heaven caters to the weary soul. The small island allows only 300 visitors per day having only one inn and limited resources. The island boasts three ecosystems; remote beaches, marshes and forests. Swimming/sunbathing, quiet walks and exploration renew the soul and let me just mention here the primo attraction is the wild horses that freely roam the island. I am so looking forward to this one!
