Travel + Leisure named the Golden Isles as the #1 Best U.S. Islands in the 2023 World’s Best Awards. St. Simons Island offers a plethora of outdoor activities for families to enjoy together. Here are some fantastic options to consider:

Beach Exploration: We have beautiful sandy beaches perfect for sunbathing, swimming, and beachcombing. Take a leisurely stroll along the shore, collect seashells, build sandcastles, or simply relax and enjoy the sound of the waves.

Biking: Explore the island’s scenic beauty by renting bicycles to travel the many bike-friendly paths and trails winding through picturesque neighborhoods, marshlands, and oak-lined streets. Exploring on two wheels is a great way for the whole family to see the sights, and our friends at Monkeywrench Bicycles are happy to set you up with bikes for a ride.

Fishing: Whether you’re an experienced angler or a novice, fishing is a popular activity on St. Simons. Cast a line from the pier, charter a boat for a deep-sea fishing, or try your luck in the island’s rivers and tidal creeks. The knowledgeable folks at St. Simons Bait & Tackle have the info you need to get you on your way, and they rent rods and reels too.

Kayaking and Paddleboarding: Explore the island’s waterways by kayaking or paddleboarding. Glide through tranquil marshes, winding creeks, and the Intracoastal Waterway while enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. Whether you’re going for a serene solo paddle or bonding as a family, it’s an ideal way to get some outdoor exercise. Don’t have your own boat or board? Call Turtle Tides to rent; they’ll even deliver to you.

Golfing: St. Simons is the home to world-class golf courses that cater to players of all skill levels. Spend a day on the links amidst stunning coastal landscapes and lush green fairways.

Lighthouse Tours: Climb the 129 stairs to the top of the iconic St. Simons Lighthouse for panoramic views of the island and surrounding waterways.

Outdoor Dining: Enjoy a delicious meal al fresco at one of the island’s many outdoor dining venues. From seafood shacks to upscale waterfront restaurants, there’s something to satisfy every palate. Even Guy Fieri knows, Porch SSI is just one of the local eateries he’s visited recently.

With its natural beauty, diverse attractions and abundance of outdoor activities, St. Simons Island offers endless opportunities for adventure and relaxation.

Just about the only thing you can’t do here is snow ski!

Enjoy!
