Sea Island is an unincorporated area of Glynn County, Georgia, and is part of the Golden Isles of Georgia, including Jekyll Island, St. Simons Island, and Little St. Simons Island. The seaside island is located along the Atlantic Coast near Historic Brunswick, and is a well-visited resort island. Sea Island Acquisitions, LLC owns the island, operating two resorts, limiting most public access. The island sits about 60 miles north of Jacksonville, FL and about sixty miles south of Savannah, GA. The surrounding marshland, through which visitors are able to drive, was immortalized in 'The Marshes of Glynn' by Sidney Lanier in 1878.Sea Island houses three well-visited resorts, the "Sea Island Beach Club", "The Cloister", and "The Lodge" each operated by Sea Island Acquisitions. Both are located across the street from one another, connected by a roundabout in the middle of Sea Island Dr., Sea Island's main connecting road. The Beach Club lies by the ocean-side, providing visitors who sit on the beach with accommodations and access to pool areas. The resort contains restaurants, a game room, an ice cream shop, a bar, and two pools. The Cloister (commonly referred to plurally as either "Cloisters" or "the Cloisters") sits south-west on the island along the Black Banks River and functions as the main hotel of the resort island, containing restaurants, several hotel rooms, a spa, tennis and squash courts, an exercise facility, and is home to the only Forbes Five Star restaurant in the state of Georgia, "The Georgian Room". Sea Island Acquisitions also owns property on St. Simon's Island, including a shooting school, and three other golf courses.The Lodge, commonly referred to as "The Golfer's Paradise" is located on St. Simons Island and is the home of two of three golf courses the company owns, Plantation and Seaside. The third golf course is located at the residential community Sea Island owns known as Retreat. The Lodge has been host to the newly formed golf tournament The McGladery Classic, for the past five years.When using our United States family vacation planner to make an itinerary online, Sea Island holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
