Explore Jekyll Island on 2 Wheels

January 16, 2018 | adventure

The great thing about a getaway to Jekyll Island is, once you arrive, no car necessary! Jekyll Island has over 20 miles of bike paths that connects all parts of the island together. Discover the broad range of scenery, from beaches to forests, to Jekyll Island's own Historic Landmark District and Beach Village.

Take a cruise along the oceanfront side of the island and discover Jekyll’s untouched shorelines, the historic Great Dunes golf course, and the Beach Village that’s perfect for refueling with a quick snack or casual lunch. If you follow the beach path all the way north, you’ll discover on of Jekyll Island’s most beautiful gems – Driftwood Beach!

If the history of the island excites you, then head out on the path through the Historic District. Check out all the original Jekyll Island Club cottages and landmarks, and if you keep north on the trail, you’ll find Horton House and Dubignon Cemetery. The Horton House holds the title of one of the oldest tabby buildings in Georgia!

If you’re into “taking the road less traveled”, then definitely check out the south end bike paths. You’ll find yourself winding through the maritime forests with hundreds of gorgeous ancient oaks and other trees offering ample shade. This path will loop you all the way around the south point of the island, where you will then discover St. Andrews Picnic Area. Soak in views of the rolling waves, sand dunes and dolphins on the two-story wildlife viewing platform, stroll along the beach looking for shark’s teeth, or relax with a picnic to refuel.

Whatever bike adventure you’re in the mood for, Jekyll Island has it! And with the addition of our bike shop, Jekyll Wheels, you’re never without bike rentals, biking accessories, or a quick tune-up!
