Best beach on the island for finding sand dollars. Usually not very crowded. Located on the ocean side of the island great view.

This location is very easy to access. Clean beaches, clean restrooms with changing rooms, shaded picnic area, outdoor showers and location is walking distance to shopping and dinning options. Beach was not overly crowded. Dogs on leashes are allowed. Wind and waves were heavy at times. We got plenty of sun and didn't even feel it. Not a place for shelling, very easy to walk with no shoes as sand is not hot and beaches are very clear. Plenty of room to toss a ball or set up a game or two.

This place has amazing handicap access. Although we are not handicap we took a wagon down to the beach. This made it so much easier for us to pull!!

We beach hop in the summer and this is an average beach location and facility. The bathrooms are dirty and there is one shower system with 3 nozzles which is completely inadequate under the circumstances. Then the have a nasty trash can next to the shower so you can enjoy the aroma. The beach is not great because it has some pretty sharp shells and no real waves that you can enjoy. We consider Amelia Island beaches to be superior to the Jekyll/St. Simon's one's. The beach has a lot of debris on it because they don't want to upset the turtle hatching process. Finally, if you are going you need to go before 9 a.m. or after 4 p.m. to avoid crowds and scorching sun.
