Trip Report Jekyll Island - Fab Family Destination

Jump to last reply

I hate to write this travel report. I don't want too many people to find my favorite spot. Came back from a four night trip to Jekyll Island. Nearly perfect. Why?

Jekyll is owned by the state of Georgia. It has large tracks of undeveloped beach areas and virgin marine forests. When you are on the beach you are likely to see more fiddler crabs than people.

We stayed at the new Hampton Inn. (Free because of award points.) It was nice with quiet rooms. The AC worked great. We had two standard rooms but they were large. The pool was steps away and a board walk took us to the ocean. My only complaint was they were stingy with towels - not a good thing for a beach resort. The hotel is secluded, nearly a mile from the closest hotel or house.

Bring your own bikes, because you will want to coast through the marsh trails and rentals are pricey. Jekyll has an extensive network of trails. I do believe you could stay on the island for a week without driving.

Jekyll has good restaurants. We followed TA advice and never went wrong.

I'm ready to go back!
