What really sets Georgia’s coastline apart from the rest of the Eastern Seaboard, though, is its spectacular barrier islands, most of which remain undeveloped and contain protected wilderness areas. Only four are accessible by car.
Each island has its own flavor. Some have fancy resorts and trendy restaurants. Others are completely uninhabited or only sparsely so. And all of them are rich in history, be it Native American, antebellum era or Gilded Age.
