The small island called Sea Island is nestled between St. Simons Island and Little St. Simons Island. This location is a part of the barrier islands that line the Georgia coast. The island was not developed until the 1920s, which is astonishing because of its coastal views and bountiful seas. Consider that the half-mile-wide and five-miles long island is mostly private, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy what it offers, a resort at your disposal for experiencing the south.
Fortunately, the island is accessible by car because a causeway connects Sea Island with Saint Simons. Except for the Sea Island Resort, the island is inhabited by 500 families within the gates. Sea Island is nearly smack dab in the center of two airports. The Savannah airport to the north and Jacksonville airport to the south. From either airport, the drive is about one hour and thirty minutes.
The resort offers five different lodging accommodations called The Lodge, The Cloister, The Inn, Cottage rentals, and Broadfield. From large family gatherings to couples, the Sea Island Resort has you covered. Depending on where you chose to stay, resort fees and parking are in addition to the room rate.
