Sea Island Beach, Sea Island

This private, exclusive island—one of four that comprise the state’s Golden Isles—is accessible only to residents, Sea Island members, and guests at one of its luxury hotels or resorts. The Forbes Five-Star The Cloister at Sea Island, grants visitors access to the island as well as the stunning and tranquil Sea Island Beach.

In addition to a large swath of private beachfront, the resort boasts three pools, a playground, three championship golf courses, and a tranquil, 65,000-square-foot spa. Fitness enthusiasts can ride horses through the marsh or cycle along paths lined with old-growth oak trees draped with the area’s signature moss.


The food is as exceptional as the scenery. Try pizzas and other Italian-inspired dishes at the energetic Tavola, or fish sandwiches, shrimp baskets, and other laid-back dishes at the elegant, beachside Southern Tide restaurant.
