Villas by the Sea, Jekyll Island, GA

Area Attractions

Did you know that the Spanish, who explored the Golden Isles looking for precious metals, called them Islas de Oro. Although the explorers didn’t find the gold they were searching for, they did find treasures—the coastal barrier islands. We call them Georgia’s Golden Isles. You will find an abundance of activities to fill your day!

From the mainland and across the four barrier islands, you will discover breathtaking beauty, rich history and recreation that will revitalize you each step of the way!

Stroll, bike or swim along miles of sun-drenched beaches. The choice is yours and you will find they are endless. If golf is your game you will find many courses to challenge you.

You can step back in time by exploring many of our fascinating historical sites and museums or lose yourself in one of the many charming shops or galleries filled with chic clothes and local treasures.

If food is your passion you will find a restaurant to suit every taste and appetite, from elegant to casual. And if that is not enough, our warm southern hospitality, like the glorious weather, welcomes 365 days a year! Come to the Villas by the Sea and enjoy a lifetime of memories!
