  • Brunswick and The Golden Isles of Georgia include the port city of Brunswick, St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island. These four islands are found among the clusters of barrier islands that hug Georgia’s historic Atlantic coastline.

    Barrier islands, separated from the mainland by salt marshes, tidal rivers and sounds, are both dynamic ecosystems and the mainland’s natural shields against hurricanes and ocean storms. These land masses are dynamic in nature, continually changing as they are shaped by the powerful forces of winds, ocean currents, waves, storms and tides with tides have the greatest impact on the evolution of barrier islands.

    This area is located approximately 75 miles south of Savannah, 65 miles north of Jacksonville, Florida and 280 miles from Atlanta.
