Our family of 6 adults & 4 young children had a fantastic vacation on St. George Island after booking a house by VRBO. The beach is awesome with fine squeaky sand & clear warm water. There is not a lot to do there, but that was what we wanted. There are no high rises, few stores, but adequate for what... More

The beach is beautiful and the hotel was nice. The water was clear. I would recommend this beach to anyone looking to get away for a while.

this was probably once a beautiful place but developers removed most of the greenery to build houses and rentals. the state park part is undeveloped but the rest of the island is too touristy for my taste. beaches are ok and the bridge is great!

We visit SGI every summer, it is a quiet beach, not crowded and mellow folks on the island. There is a handful of restaurants and two small grocery stores on the island. It's a great place to relax on the beach but if you want more excitement you can rent a surrey or bikes, plenty of miles of bike paths... More

One of the most beautiful islands I've ever visited. The beaches are simply amazing and spotlessly clean. Dolphins and turtles swimming right up next to the shore is a treat to watch. A big enough selection of restaurants, shops, bars and plenty of activities like jet skiing, kayaking, sail boards and bikes etc available to hire! Having an amazing time... More

This is our seventh summer vacationing at St George Island and we love it every year! It's a great place for a family trip - feels safe, can travel by golf carts for fun, shopping and food, good restaurants when you want to eat out, nice clean beaches, and lots of nearby excursions when you want to get out and...

My husband and I and 4 teenagers went to SGI in June 2016. We were here 8 years earlier. What I love most about SGI is that it is not commercialized and has a very local home town feel. The only franchise I saw on the island was a Subway. It is definitely a peaceful place to just relax unlike... More

Beautiful drive onto the Island. Long Bridges that carry you miles to get you to the island. We enjoyed the drive.
