Cumberland Island

Cumberland Island National Seashore is the largest and southernmost barrier island in Georgia, offering guests more than 17 miles of secluded white, sandy beaches. Wild horses and other island wildlife roam freely throughout the ruins and along the beach. Glimpses of the Carnegie lifestyle can be easily imagined throughout the ruins of DungenessPlum Orchard and Greyfield Inn.

Cumberland Island is accessible by ferry only. Reservations for the 45-minute ferry ride are recommended. Board the ferry to Cumberland Island in St. Marys, a historic small town located on the Georgia coast approximately midway between Jacksonville, Florida, and Brunswick, Georgia.

Explore the island on a day trip, or bring everything you need to stay overnight at one of the island's campgrounds. Or, you can stay at the luxurious Greyfield Inn, which has its own ferry and pampers guests with gourmet dinners, naturalist-led wilderness tours and plush accommodations.
