Top 200 Places: Jekyll Island Beaches

Friday, March 30th, 2012


Jekyll Island Beaches and Trails
off SR 520
Jekyll Island,
Georgia
877-453-5955

These beaches look like a Caribbean island setting. It is hard to believe that you just drove here over a causeway. Dogs on leash are welcome year round on the beach and the paved and dirt trails. There are about 10 miles of beaches and 20 miles of inland paved and dirt trails. It is recommended that your pooch stay on the paved trails instead of the dirt trails during the warm summer months because there are too many ticks along the dirt trails. On warmer days you might choose a beach walk rather than the inland trails anyway because of the cooler ocean breezes.
