Each of Georgia’s five Golden Isles towns — St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island and the historic port city of Brunswick — comes with its own charisma, personality and appeal, making it an idyllic destination for all types of travelers. Golfers, beachcombers, history buffs and eco-tourists will all find unique experiences suited for couples and families alike. For nature lovers looking for a dramatic backdrop, Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island is one that you won't find anywhere else. Once a maritime forest, this striking sea-scape is now lined with driftwood and weathered trunks and branches resembling a scene from another world. The result is a highly photogenic coastline that’s perfect for engagement and wedding photos, or simply enjoying early-morning sunrises, after-dark stargazing, picnics, and more. Tip: Time your visit to low (or outgoing) tide. Check a current tide chart before planning your visit.
