JekylI Island Directory
Located a mere six miles off the Georgia mainland Jekyll Island is an island that
has withstood the test of tides and time and held on to a natural beauty that
is quickly fading from other nearby islands that are under heavy pressure from
development. Purchased by the State of Georgia in 1947, Jekyll Island has a history
that dates back many centuries. From the hunting grounds of early American Indians,
to wealthy French planters, Jekyll has seen her soil used for hunting, planting,
recreation, isolation, relaxation, while at the same time, retaining a colorful
history...some as dark as Shell Creek on a moonless night. Others a bright as
the radiant ocean sunrise. A never ending history constantly rewritten with the
ebb and flow of each and every tide.
Jekyll Island has something for everyone. Whether young or
old, rustic or ritzy, Jekyll Island offers an array of accomodations
and activities. Stay in luxury or camp out under the stars.
