Georgia boasts four barrier islands called the Golden Isles, one of which is Jeckyll Island.  You can find this idyllic spot about halfway between Savannah, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida.  

Each of these islands offers you unique attractions, but my favorite is Jeckyll Island with its natural beauty and unique landscape.


The sand dunes on Jeckyll Island, provide a home to thousands of different plant and animal species.  To name a few, you can find ghost crabs, plovers, sea gulls, sea oats, etc.  Loggerhead turtles come ashore to lay their eggs as do many shorebirds.

The beach at the north end of the island provides a unique landscape with magnificent weathered driftwood and trees left behind as a result of erosion.  While I would not recommend it for swimming, it is a photographer's paradise.
