St. Simons Island, Georgia
St. Simons Island, Georgia
St. Simons Island is sometimes described as a little
piece of paradise. Scarcely known outside Georgia,
it is quite possibly the best kept secret along the
coastal Southeast.
The island's majestic entrance over miles of unspoiled marshland was memorialized by Sidney Lanier in
his poem
The Marshes of Glynn. It's a place where an unpretentious low country meets the great ocean
... where huge tidal changes breathe life into the grassy expanse flourishing in wildlife.
you will discover the
magic of St. Simons
Island. Upon arrival,
Somewhere in between
visitors are enveloped
by a feeling of calm
amidst ancient
moss-draped oaks
standing alongside
glorious palms and tall
southern pines.
The beach at St. Simons Island is
like no other. As the 7-foot tide
shifts from high to low, it pulls the
shoreline 1/2 mile out to sea
uncovering a breathtaking system
sandbars and shoals.
Development is largely unseen along the north end of the beach where an abundant shrub forest has been
protected and allowed to expand naturally. Acres of young dune fields nurture sensitive Sea Oats while
thousands of shore birds migrate from one sand bar to the next with the receding tide. Residents and
visitors alike cherish their privileged enjoyment of this ecological wonderland.
