Visit St. Simons Island Georgia

Monday, September 17, 2018
Our vacation to St. Simons Island was very relaxing.  What we discovered was a gem of a beach and a quiet place for retreat and solitude. The slow place of the island was a perfect spot to recharge from a hectic full time life. We enjoyed our time so much we have begun planning to go back again hopefully very soon. 

Surrounded by expansive beaches, moss-draped oaks, and salt marshes, Saint Simons Island, is part of the Golden Isles chain near Brunswick, is a nearly 18 square mile island.  Lots of opportunities to fish in the rivers, tidal creeks,  and the Atlantic Ocean.  You’ll find charters and guides at the Golden Isles Marina, and you can also fish off the St. Simons Island Pier and surf cast on stretches of beach on the island’s north end. For such a compact island, Saint Simons is filled with historic sites.

St. Simons Island  remains a sleepy coastal town with lots of things to do here.

The beach is full of endless possibilities, even though it’s literally just sand and salt water. I feel like it’s just impossible to be bored at a beach.


Things to Do on St. Simons Island

Year-round warm weather in the Golden Isles allows visitors to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as kayaking, fishing, biking the St. Simons Island Trail System, horseback riding, golfing, or relaxing with your toes in the sand on East Beach. Visitors can tour the island’s historic sites on a variety of transportation options, including the island's ever-popular guided trolley tours through the island.

With so many things to do at St. Simons Island, it could be difficult figuring out where to start.

Dining

St. Simons Island offers a variety of dining options from fine dining to casual outdoor fare. I highly recommend Barbara Jean’s Restaurant and Bar, it is a family run restaurant on St. Simons Island, Georgia, about 60 miles south of Savannah. They specialize in both seafood and made-from-scratch, home-style cooking.


If you want a nice relaxing place to rejuvenate, then this is the place to come.  Don't tell too many of your friends, they like it quiet down here.

This is our second visit to this Island and on this  trip  we were invited by a friend to stay at their Front Beach Condo.  The room we are at has this nice tropical feeling. From the wall paint to the room decor  and the smell of the ocean from the balcony was amazing!
