Beachview Club Hotel
Amid the sweeping branches of ancient oak trees, the oceanfront boutique Beachview Club Hotel offers bright, friendly rooms, most with private patios or balconies. The island was once the exclusive retreat of Rockefellers, Pulitzers, and Vanderbilts, but now you can roam Jekyll's 10 miles of white-sand beaches; navigating the small barrier island is easy by foot, bike, or golf cart.
Don't miss biking the island's more than 20 miles of paved paths that lead to the beach and forest, and through the Historic Landmark District. Rent a tandem bike, four-person surrey (electric cart), or mini surrey, and stop by the Pier Road shops to browse.
