Discover Jekyll Island in the Golden Isles of Georgia

Come experience the warmth of the sun, pristine stretches of Georgia's coastline, and activities to engage every sense of adventure.  The southernmost island of the Golden Isles, Jekyll Island is one of the most popular islands for Golden Isles visitors, hosting a wide variety of family-friendly activities and attractions. This 5,700 acre island was purchased in 1886 by a group of wealthy families as a private retreat. By 1900, The Jekyll Island Club membership included the Rockefellers, Morgans, Cranes and Goulds and represented over one-sixth of the world’s wealth. The Club closed in 1942 and Jekyll Island was purchased by the State of Georgia in 1947. 

Since the island is owned by the State of Georgia and managed by the Jekyll Island Authority, the island’s development is limited to just 1,609 acres to preserve the critical barrier island ecosystem. Great lengths have been taken to honor this ratio while the highly anticipated revitalization of Jekyll Island moves forward. Since most of the island is protected, there is also plenty of nature and wildlife to explore!
