Secret Seasons in the Golden Isles

August 4, 2021

Missing out on that summer beach vacation can be a bummer for many, but no reason to be sad; the secret beach season is right around the corner.  The end of summer marks the beginning of one of the best seasons on St. Simons Island, fall.  With golden marshes and the cool breezes, many visitors seek out this time of year and not just for the slimmer crowds.

September – November the island takes on a slower but still energetic pace.  Early fall gives Golden Isles beach goers a chance to soak up the last days of warm weather and the relaxed pet policy allows four legged friends and their families freedom to play in the sand. Biking becomes less of a workout and more of an all day adventure stopping at restaurants, historic sites and shops along the way.

As we move into fall the weather may cool down but the island heats up.  Whether it’s an arts and crafts festival, live music, 18 holes, or 4 quarters…the island is bustling with activities for everyone.  Early October is still warm enough to rest pool-side and read your favorite book or spend your afternoon at one of the local watering holes cheering on your favorite football team.  November temps stay in the 60s and 70s, perfect for visitors who enjoy long walks on a cool beach day. The annual RSM golf tournament is also held in November bringing fans and locals out for fellowship and entertainment.

Book your secret season retreat today and experience fall festivals, football, and everything in between.
