Cumberland Island

Historic Sites
An unspoiled paradise of dense maritime forests, salt marshes, mudflats, tidal creeks, and wide sandy beaches, Cumberland Island is the largest barrier island off Georgia coast. A trip to Cumberland Island can satisfy your hunger for pristine wilderness, as well as your curiosity for historical secrets. Gnarled oak trees draped with Spanish moss and remains of lavish mansions built by wealthy industrialists whisper captivating tales of slaves and aristocrats, privilege and poverty. Jagged tree-lined trails and horses roaming freely around the island complete the tranquil scenery of the island, which once served as a winter retreat for the wealthy Carnegie family. Nature and history walks are at the core of the most Cumberland Island tours, while other options include fishing, camping, and bird-watching.
