We took the first ferry over in the morning and walked over to the beach. The island is serene, peaceful and beautiful! Would love to go back in cooler weather for hiking and exploring.

Perfect trip for two museum loving backpackers. The staff and volunteers were extreme helpful and super nice. They always seemed to be on the lookout for ways they could help.

beautiful place to walk or ride a rented bike on the shore. You can go for a day trip from Fernandina Beach, FL, including boat ride there and delicious lunch arranged by Greyfield Inn. Their office is at 4 N 2d street, Fernandina Beach. 904.261-6408

This was my second visit. The first time, I spent a lot of time wandering the ruins and restored buildings. This time, we did more exploring. The walk on the beach from Dungeness to Sea Camp was amazing. No people as far as you could see. The horses are beautiful to watch wander freely, but the nature and history there... More

Few places have something for everyone. Cumberland Island has beaches for the kids with treasures to find, historical ruins for those who want a glimpse into how the wealthiest once vacationed, and unspoiled nature for all who love the outdoors.

The land and legacies tour was an enjoyable and informative opportunity to see the North End of the island without walking or biking the 10 miles to the Sea Camp campground. The speaker was knowledgeable and helpful, friendly and passionate. Occasionally she got a little annoyed at some the group members wandering off, but this was understandable. The history of...

We visited Cumberland Island on one of the hottest days of the year and still managed the 7 mile walk from the Dungeness Ruins to the coastline and back to the ferry. It was magical and amazing to see all the wild life and beautiful oak canopies, the wild horses roaming about and the most pristine beach I have ever... More

This is a one-of-a-kind amazing experience, especially if you are a tree fanatic...the trails on the south end of the island, especially the Parallel Trail and the Sea Camp Trail take you into a landscape of live oaks dripping with Spanish Moss towering over an underbrush of saw palmettos...just breath taking. We hiked both trails and the beach from Sea... More

This seashore is steeped in history. The untampered beach areas provide an opportunity to view sea turtles laying their eggs. Although challenging to reach (only by Ferry) and requiring planning (no food available on island for day trippers) it is an amazing seashore for exploring and learning about this type of habitat.

We took a boat cruise through cumberland Island and was able to see dolphins and wild horses. We loved the adventure, historical information and of course the natural landscapes with the wild animals. I highly recommend visiting this attraction.
