Cumberland Island

St. Marys also serves as a gateway to coastal Georgia’s crown jewel, Cumberland Island National Seashore. The southernmost of Georgia’s barrier islands is also the largest; Cumberland Island boasts over 9,800 acres of Congressionally Designated Wilderness. Only accessible by boat, visitors can board the ferry in St. Marys, and spend the day up close and personal with nature by exploring the island’s pristine maritime forests, undeveloped beaches, wide marshes and historic ruins.

History abounds on Cumberland Island. History buffs will appreciate the rich artifacts located throughout the island. The historical ruins of the prestigious Carnagie family’s beloved Dungeness estate, remain on the island; now frequented by wild horses and other wildlife. With a short shuttle ride, north on the island will allow you a glimpse back-in-time at the First African Baptist Church and a tour of Plum Orchard Mansion. Those wishing to truly immerse themselves in the majesty of the island can spend a night in the luxurious Greyfield Inn or setting up camp at one of the island’s variety of unique campsites.

As you embark on your adventure at Cumberland Island, planning is key! Wild horses roam free amongst the palmattos and live oaks that line more than 50 miles of trails and roads, and the island’s expansive 18 miles of beach. Hiking, biking, camping, birdwatching and beachcombing are popular activities; the biggest rule of thumb is to leave the island exactly as you’ve found it. Visitors are encouraged to pack only what you need for the day as you prepare to explore, and get ready for a glimpse of wildlife in its purest form, sure to be an adventure to remember.
