Enjoy Georgia Sports
Jekyll Island is perfect for sports enthusiasts because of the proximity to local venues. Jekyll Island Club boasts some of the best golf in coastal Georgia. The club boasts three 18-hole courses and one 9-hole historic course. If golf is not for you, you can try tennis at Jekyll Island Tennis Center, which was recently voted one of the best tennis destinations in the nation. Or enjoy soccer or lacrosse at the Jekyll Island Soccer Complex to play these sports.
Get to Know Mother Nature
The Georgia Sea Turtle Center provides amusement and education centered around this delightful marine species. Rescue and research are also part of the center's repertoire. Another interesting destination is the UGA 4-H Tidelands Nature Center, where you can take a guided kayak tour through a salt marsh.
Summer Waves Water Park is a family favorite and great way to cool off from the hot Georgia sun by relaxing in the wave pools and racing down water slides. Want a more educational experience? The Jekyll Island Museum boasts tours and programs which give visitors a glimpse into the area's past.
