Outdoor markets, warmly lit downtowns, cozy restaurants, cheerful locals... there is something special about American…
If you haven’t been to Sea Island, Georgia, add it to your list.
From hiking, fishing, and relaxing on the beach (or at a spa!), theres no shortage of things to do.
Normally, I would not start the highlights with something as mundane as a spa. This is different…Sea Island might just have the mother of all spas. The gorgeously decorated 65,000 square foot facility is one of the nation’s most prestigious spas and has been rated 5-stars by the Forbes Travel Guide. It has 26 treatment rooms to fulfill the resort’s extensive offering of services. Relax in a Turkish or Japanese bath to experience the spa’s signature ritual that include a seven-step infusion of ginger grass and cherry blossom rice body polishes. Wow! And you can take your kids, the spa offers programs for kids 8 to 15 that covers skin care, massages, sports and nature hikes.
Explore the Wildlife
When I travel, one of my favorite things to do is hike and see the local wildlife. Sea Island is a nature lover’s resort with 5 incredible miles of private beach and coastline. Go kayaking in the marsh to explore the tidal grasslands or rent a bike and take a tour through the island’s natural history. If you go in the summer, make sure you go on the Sea Turtle Expedition. You’ll get to see the turtle eggs and tiny baby turtles which will bring tons of oohs and ahhs from everyone in the family.
You might have heard that Sea Island is a pretty good place to play golf! The reality is that even though he might try, dad will not be allowed to play golf the entire trip. Spend the trip making memories, and one of the best memories you can make is teaching your children how to fish. Sea Island offers kid-friendly trips lasting two-hours that are perfect for introducing any child to the wonders of fishing. Captains are on-duty to make sure the kids have a great time by teaching, baiting hooks and taking care of all the little things you’ll need while you’re on the water. Young kids can go fishing and crabbing right off the dock, catching trout, redfish, flounder and tarpon.
