Your guide to St. Simons Island

All About St. Simons Island

Located off of Georgia’s coast, St. Simons Island is the largest of the Golden Isles, known for its warm weather, sandy beaches, and historical sites. Cannon’s Point Preserve sits on the north side of the island, with shell middens from early civilizations dating to 2500 B.C. as well as a slew of hiking and biking trails. A great way to explore the area is via the St. Simons Island Trail System: 30 miles of bike paths that circle the island. Paddlers find plenty to do at the Marshes of Glynn between Jekyll Island and St. Simons, a coastal wetlands where you can spot dolphins and sea turtles.

St. Simons Island draws in visitors by boat and by car to its wonderful sandy beaches, including locals’ favorites Gould’s Inlet and East Beach. Gould’s Inlet pier is the top spot for birders to take in the waterfowl while anglers fish for red drum. Redfern Village’s tree-lined streets are jammed with art galleries and boutiques alongside bars and restaurants serving low country boils and fresh local seafood.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in St. Simons Island

June through August provide the warmest days when the island’s beaches come into their own. The nights drop a bit in temperature but are still quite pleasant. January is the coldest month, but even so, the temperatures remain relatively comfortable throughout winter. The rainy season is from the end of August through September, so you’ll want to dress accordingly with waterproof layers. Spring and autumn are less busy but still warm enough to book condo rentals and be able to enjoy all the island has to offer. Fall is also a good time to catch the annual Food and Spirits Festival with regional producers and artisans, farm stands, markets, and tasting tents.

Top things to do in St. Simons Island

St. Simons Lighthouse Museum

Not far from the village and pier is St. Simons Lighthouse Museum. One of only five light towers in Georgia, its beam — which shoots 23 miles out to sea across St. Simons Sound — still navigates ships around the coastline. Climb the 129 steps to the top and admire the spectacular views towards the south end of St. Simons Island, as well as panoramic views across to Jekyll Island and Brunswick on the mainland. The Keeper’s Dwelling houses a small museum showcasing rare artifacts.

Cannon’s Point Preserve

On the northern side of the island, Cannon’s Point Preserve is a beautiful natural area adorned with forests and wildlife. There are around six miles of salt marsh, river shoreline, and tidal creek inhabited with an array of birds, fish, manatee, and oysters. The area offers nature walks and biking trails, historic ruins, and boat launches.

Massengale Park

One of the most popular recreational areas on the island with access to East Beach, this park offers a lovely picnic area that is shaded by tall oaks.
