Georgia is brimming with beaches, but if you’re traveling with the kiddos, it’s worth it to be selective. And it’s also easy, as we has already rounded up the best Georgia beaches for families for you! Once you’ve picked a destination, make sure to book an affordable Georgia beach rental that’s big enough for your group.


Jekyll Island

The very rich used to dominate this resort town, but these days all laid-back beach bums of all budgets are welcome. When sizing up the best Georgia beaches for families, consider Jekyll Island if your #1 goal is relaxation. Due to its remote locale, tanning, canoeing, and fishing are just that much more carefree here. Little ones will love the Georgia Sea Turtle Center and the Summer Waves Water Park.


St Simons Island

Massengale Park Beach in St Simon's Island is the main attraction, and with on-duty lifeguards June 1 through Labor Day, this is definitely one of the best Georgia beaches for families. Attractions include the King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort, charter fishing, the St Simon’s Island Lighthouse, and a generous number of shops and restaurants.


Tybee Island

The best Georgia beaches for families are the quaintest – and it doesn’t get much quainter than Tybee Island. Since Tybee Island’s collection of beaches is so walkable, it will be easy to keep up with your whole crew. For fun off the water, head to the Tybee Island Museum, the Tybee Lighthouse, or visit nearby Savannah, a city full of family-friendly things to do.


Lake Lanier

Georgia’s best beaches aren’t all on the ocean. The state is home to quite a few lakes, and Lake Lanier is a favorite – especially among the sporty. It’s easy to kill a day just watching all the boaters and jet skiers do their thing. The Lake Lanier Beach and Water Park is the main reason, however, families enjoy this Georgia destination so much.
