The Coastal Isles and the Okefenokee Sights

East Beach

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

The only public beach on St. Simons is also one of the most popular in all of the Golden Isles. Entrances sit on either end of the beach: at the Coast Guard Station on 1st Street to the north and Massengale Park on Oak Street to the south. Between the two entrances, this ½-mi stretch of hard-packed white sand is vacation central, with calm, shallow water perfect for swimming, boogie boarding, or windsurfing. Plenty of parking is available, lifeguards watch the waves all

summer, and drinking is allowed in plastic containers (no glass bottles). Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, parking, showers, toilets. Best for: swimming, windsurfing.
