Lesser-Known Islands

Georgia's Coast is a magnificent stretch of seventeen barrier islands. Several of them are well known, but how much do you know about Little Tybee Island or Little Wassaw Island? We'll visit them both as well as the rest of the Wassaw Island National Wildlife Refuge.

Next, we'll visit Little St. Simon's Island, a privately owned resort with lots of opportunities for outdoor recreation. You can hike, ride, sea kayak, go birding, fish, or just walk along the miles of beaches. We'll also learn why Georgia has the most protected coast on the Eastern Seaboard.
