St. Simons Island Activities

Best Summer Activities for Group Travelers Around St. Simons Island

Summers are meant for three things: traveling, family, and the beach. When you combine all three, you’re guaranteed the adventure of a lifetime! Be it your wedding and an intimate gathering of those who are closest to you, a family reunion that allows you to play on the beaches again with the cousins who made summer days wonderful so very long ago, or simply a celebration of the matriarch of your family’s 90th birthday, these special moments deserve a special retreat, but this can sometimes be problematic.

If you manage to find a space big enough to hold the entire family, you often can’t find activities to keep them occupied throughout the day—except right here on (or around) St. Simons Island! Our tiny island paradise is designed for big fun for big families. Here’s a few of our favorite St. Simons Island activities to do when our own families descend upon us!

Enjoy St. Simons Island Activities at the Beach

It may seem obvious, but a day at the beach is the perfect adventure for large groups and there are activities that will entertain all personality types. Rent a couple of kayaks from Barry’s Beach Services, pack some snorkeling gear, a good book, and enough chairs and umbrellas to allow everyone a comfortable place to sit and reminisce over the good old days, and you’ve got a party! Oh, and don’t forget to do a little advance planning and purchase a fire permit from the Glynn County Fire Department; nothing is as heartwarming as a beach bonfire spent with your family! Pets are permitted on the beach after 6 PM during the summer, so this would be a good time to allow Fido to join in the festivities!

Hit the Links

Enjoy a caravan of golf carts with your favorite golf enthusiasts when you spend a morning chasing that dimpled white ball around some of the best courses in all of Georgia! The King & Prince Golf Course and Sea Palms Golf Club are two of our favorite St. Simons Island courses, and the Jekyll Island Golf Club is on our favorite St. Simons Island activities list!

Stay In and Play

Who says you have to leave the comforts of your SSI Rentals vacation accommodations to have a good time? Rent one of our larger homes with a pool and you have a built-in good time just waiting to happen! Grill the fish you caught off the pier with a frosty mug of beer in hand, play your favorite 80s rock music in the fully equipped kitchen as you prep the side dishes, and show your cousins you can still do a proper cannonball into the pool, no matter how many years have passed! Our SSI Rentals vacation escapes are built for families. Contact us today and let’s get the summer celebration planning started!
