WITH NATURE & NURTURE
Jekyll Island’s exquisite natural beauty has long drawn guests to its barrier shores. Surrounded by picturesque marshes and breathtaking oceanfront, Georgia’s smallest barrier island is a peaceful coastal habitat. The island has a vibrant history, originally inhabited by the Guale indians, Jekyll Island was explored by the Spanish and first settled by the English. At the turn of the century, those who represented 1/6 of the world’s wealth made the Jekyll Island Club their exclusive retreat. Today’s stunning new oceanfront convention center, newly revitalized Beach Village with beach promenade, shopping, dining and The Westin Jekyll Island provide visitors with unlimited options to enjoy this pristine island all yearlong. With miles of beach, marsh and maritime forest, Jekyll Island is a haven of discovery.
