While we might not have the Caribbean Islands as close as Florida, Georgia has its own set of islands that are worth exploring on a weekend. Georgia’s Barrier Islands are among the state’s top vacation destinations. With sandy beaches, gentle breezes and diverse wildlife, each of these barrier islands offers a little something different. Barrier Islands are found all along the eastern seaboard of the United States, and Georgia has several that people will come from all over to explore. We’re going to start this island hopping adventure from north to south, but really where you want to start is fine too. Ready for the perfect weekend adventure?
Note: Not all barrier islands in Georgia are open to the public. For example, Île Sainte-Catherine and Île Wolf do not allow public access.
In these uncertain times, keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket-to-visit list at a later date.
