Jekyll Island is located just off the Georgia coast, midway between Savannah, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida. A six-mile causeway separates Jekyll from the mainland and the city of Brunswick. One of many barrier islands on Georgia’s coast, Jekyll is neighbored to the north by St. Simons Island and to the south by Cumberland Island.
Jekyll is convenient to I-95, take Exit 29 and follow the signs east on U.S. 17 for approximately 10 miles. Turn right onto the Downing Musgrove Causeway (GA 520). Be sure to stop at the Jekyll Island Welcome Center, 4 miles on left. Cross onto Jekyll and through the Guest Information Center (a Parking Fee is required), and you can begin your escape to Jekyll Island!
Jekyll is located on the Intercoastal Waterway and is a convenient stop for boaters. The Jekyll Harbor Marina provides full service facilities including gasoline and diesel fuel, shower, laundry, pool and hot tub. The historic Jekyll Wharf also offers dockage and fueling options.

ISLAND "ICE SKATING"
In the winter months, Jekyll Island sets up a polymer floor that acts just like ice to allow Jekyll Island hoppers the chance to “ice” skate on the beach. Make a right out of the Conference Center parking lot. The rink is on your right just past the miniature golf course.
