Part of a picturesque chain of barrier islands nestled into Georgia's southeast, the privately owned Sea Island offers an abundance of adventure and beauty as rich as its storied history. Untouched stretches of marshland, sparkling rivers, towering oaks draped in Spanish moss, pristine beaches, and abundant wildlife set the stage for days full of endless activities for visitors of all ages. Enjoy world-class golfing, horseback riding along the coastline, kayaking to nearby islands, and cocktails overlooking the ocean at sunset. With its astonishing scenery and mild climate, you'll quickly discover the inspiration for naming this idyllic stretch of paradise the Golden Isles.
Spend a day shrimpin' aboard the Lady Jane. Float along St. Simons Sound, casting the net and sorting your catch of fish, crabs, shrimp, and other sea creatures. Come hungry, as fresh shrimp will certainly be served.
Test your marksmanship at a pheasant shoot or quail hunt at Broadfield, a 5,800-acre private hunting club. Broadfield also offers freshwater fishing and a falconer's retreat, where you can watch a peregrine falcon hunt a pheasant.
Offered spring through fall—as well as some special holidays—evening bingo is a Cloisters institution. In fact, it's the social mecca on the island. Adults and kids alike dress in their finest for a night of friendly competition.
Mild and pleasant year-round, Sea Island benefits from its coastal perch and semitropical environment with gentle ocean breezes that help warm the winters and cool the summers. Summers can get hot and humid, with temps typically ranging from 74°F to 89°F. Rainfall is fairly consistent throughout the year, but July, August, and September tend to see the most precipitation. Temperatures cool off in the winter months, but hang steady around a still-pleasant 42°F to 62°F.
