On Jekyll Island, enjoy a docent-led tour at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, and enjoy walks along the sandy beaches; see the elegant oak trees draped with the featherlike flowing Spanish moss, observe the marine life such as dolphins, birds, and fish. Don’t forget to bring your bicycles and ride along the beaches, especially Driftwood Beach, which is a short distance from the campground where you will be staying.
