This was by far our best vacation ever – perfect for anniversary or honeymoon! We loved the unique experience of "roughing it" outdoors all day; while staying in a luxury cottage and being served gourmet meals and cocktails! LSSI is the place to forget about the rest of the world and enjoy the beach, the animals, biking, hiking and horseback riding, or just to hang out in peace, quiet, and gorgeous natural scenery. I would NOT recommend this island to anyone who wants a vacation with shopping, neon nightlife, or disney-like entertainment; or to anyone who can't live without TV. It's true that LSSI is very expensive, but we felt it was worth every dime.

One of the crown jewels of Georgia's famed Golden Isles, Little St. Simons Island offers 7 miles of deserted beaches and 10,000 acres of undeveloped wilderness for exploration and relaxation. Privately owned, Little St. Simons Island has retained the charm and unhurried pace of coastal living. Moss draped live oaks and glistening marshes surround cozy accommodations in six charming cottages for no more than 32 overnight guests. The island is a paradise for nature lovers and offers a host of recreational, naturalist-led experiences including birding, boating, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, bicycling, interpretive tours, beachcombing, fishing and swimming.
