The Coastal Isles and the Okefenokee Sights

Nanny Goat Beach

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 10/13/2014

Fodor's Review

On the southeastern edge of the island, this beach sits at the heart of the rich ecological zones for which the island is known and protected. Naturalists with the Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve use this beach as an outdoor classroom, sometimes bringing groups here for beach walks. Visitors can hunt for sand dollars and whelk shells along nearly 2 mi of sandy shore; bird sightings include blue herons, egrets, ospreys, bald eagles, and the occasional plain chachalaca. A 1-mi trail connects this beach with the historic R.J. Reynolds House, crossing five ecological zones along the way. Amenities: bathrooms. Best for: solitude, walking.
