From Savannah,to St Mary's, the coast is protected by off-
Georgia has the least disturbed coast on the eastern seaboard. Due to the location of Georgia in the heart of the South Atlantic Bight (a large indentation in the southeastern coastline stretching from Cape Hatteras in the north to Cape Canaveral in the south), and the continental shelf being far off shore,Georgia's coastline is well protected from major storms, waves and currents. In fact if you look at a map, you will see that the coast line from Brunswick to St. Mary's is the farthermost West coast on the Eastern shore!
Our coastline is roughly 110 miles long, stretching from the Savannah River in the north to the St. Mary’s River in the south. There are 8 clusters of barrier islands off the coast of Georgia, four of which are accessible by car (Tybee Island,Sea Island,Jekyll Island,and St. Simons Island). The remaining islands are more difficult to reach but are well worth the effort because they are much less developed than the accessible islands.
