Immerse yourself in the pristine, quiet beauty of Little St. Simons Island and the breathtaking ecological riches of the Georgia coast. This privately owned barrier island is accessible only by boat and has been managed as a conservation property for generations. Its wetlands, woods and changing coastline beckon exploration by foot and kayak. Your visit is timed with the peak of shorebird migration. Whether boating on tidal creeks and salt marshes or strolling through maritime forests with moss-draped oaks, you’re sure to enjoy this incredible island.


  • Take a guided adventure with naturalists who live and work on the island.
  • Tuck into a bird blind to watch egrets, herons and roseate spoonbills.
  • Kayak along tidal creeks surrounded by thousands of acres of protected coastal saltmarsh.
  • Scan the shores and marshes for migrating water birds and American alligators.
