Only accessible by boat, the Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge (Wassaw Island) is part of the 100+ Sea Islands along the coast from South Carolina to Jacksonville. The island has twenty miles of dirt trails for hiking and provides excellent habitat for a variety of migratory birds and nesting sea turtles.
Wassaw Island is a perfect spot, no matter the time of year. With little development and few management practices, the 10,000-acre+ refuge is one of the most pristine on the entire eastern seaboard and is a designated National Natural Landmark. Because human activity on the island has been minimal, Wassaw Island is one of the few islands that still closely resembles a true maritime forest in Georgia.
