JEKYLL ISLAND AREA GUIDE
Jekyll Island’s natural beauty has long drawn guests to its shores. From the early settlers, to the Jekyll Island Club members, to the thousands of guests who arrive today, Jekyll Island is a retreat of history and wonder. With miles of beach, marsh, and maritime forest, Jekyll Island is a haven of discovery. Around every corner, a new adventure awaits.
Jekyll Island’s 10 miles of unspoiled beaches are perfect for sunbathing, swimming, or for leisurely walks or invigorating jogs. Perhaps best known for their natural bounty, Jekyll Island’s beaches also offer shell collecting for guests, young and old.
Jekyll Island is one of only four Georgia barrier islands that feature a paved causeway to access the island by car. It features 5,700 acres of land, including a 200-acre Jekyll Island Club Historic District. The island measures about 7 miles long by 1.5 miles wide, has 8 miles of wide, flat beaches on its east shore with sand packed hard enough for easy walking or biking, and boasts 20 miles of hiking trails.
Experience the History of the Island – In the early 1900s, Jekyll Island was a private club retreat whose members included the Rockefellers, Morgans, Cranes and Goulds and represented over one-sixth of the world’s wealth. Today, it is owned by the State of Georgia, but this history can be dramatically revisited with a tram tour of the National Historic Landmark District, including many of the opulent mansions their millionaire owners called “cottages.”
In the midsection of the river side of the island is a 240-acre Historic District where most of the buildings from the Jekyll Island Club era still stand, most in remarkable preservation. The centerpiece of the grounds is the enormous Jekyll Island Club Hotel, a two-winged structure that contains numerous suites for rental, including a beautiful presidential suite that contains the three-story turret on the front of the building. Thirty-three buildings from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries surround the hotel, with many being mansion-sized cottages.
Dating back to the days of the Rockefellers and Morgans, Jekyll Island Golf Club continues to be one of the premier golf destinations in the Southeast. With three 18-hole championship courses — as well as a 9-hole par-3 course — it will challenge golfers of all abilities for days on end.
