Sea Island is one of the few remaining destinations to experience Southern hospitality from a bygone-era. She was founded by automobile mogul, Howard Earl Coffin, who envisioned her to be the “Southern jewel for legendary ambiance.” The island has remained true to this vision since the Roaring Twenties. Among the clusters of cozy willows, tropical palms and lush green grass is an elegant, natural setting that is incomparable to other vacation destinations.
Sea Island is 85 miles south of Savannah, Georgia and 70 miles north of Jacksonville, Florida. Tucked behind St. Simons Island, she is accessible by taking the main causeway leading from mainland Georgia. Approximately 5 miles long by 2 miles wide, she is rich with marsh, a developed maritime forest and pristine beach voted one of the 5 best beaches in the world by Gourmet Magazine (May 1997). She has been home to such names as President Coolidge, Sarah Churchill (Winston Churchill’s daughter), President Bush in addition to an array of actors and actresses.
The spine of Sea Island, Sea Island Drive, runs through 36 blocks of shaded lanes filled with some of the most spectacular homes that the Golden Isles has to offer. Sea Island Drive is the only road that allows the general public to get a glimpse of the luxurious ambiance available to island residents and guests. Guests will discover a wealth of amenities on the island including world class golf, tennis, sightseeing tours, luxury spa boutique, 5-star dining options and much more.
