St. Simons Island Beach

St. Simons Island, the most heavily populated and commercialized of Georgia's Golden Isles, offers a wide variety of activities and attractions the whole family can enjoy. Activities include tennis and golf, biking, public parks, fishing (there's a popular fishing pier), boating, horseback riding or just relaxing on the beach. You'll find a great selection of resorts and lodging facilities, boutique shops and art galleries, and restaurants (offering anything from a late night snack to fine dining), plus a number of interesting historical sites.  Some of the more popular tourist attractions include:
  • Pier Village, lined with quaint shops and eateries with a fishing pier jutting out into the ocean. Neptune Park, named after a loyal slave, is also located in the village, along with a playground and paved bike paths.

St. Simons Lighthouse• St. Simons Island Lighthouse and lighthouse keeper's home are also located in the Village area. Both, the lighthouse keeper's home and the 104 ft. lighthouse (dating back to 1872), have been beautifully restored and are considered to be the oldest brick structures in Glynn County, Georgia. Visitors are welcome to tour the lighthouse and lighthouse keeper's home which have been converted into a museum and gift shop.
