St. George Island is known for its pristine beaches, where the aquamarine waves meet sugar white sand, and the sunsets light up in pink, orange, and—if you’re lucky—scarlet. The gorgeous coastline is reason enough St. George Island should be top of your list for spring break, but this community offers even more than stunning sights and salty air! Check out our favorite activities to keep in mind while planning your perfect spring break.
With 17 miles of paved bike trails, St. George Island is a cyclist’s dream. Can’t bring your own pair of wheels? No problem! Island Dog offers rentals for bikes, scooters, trikes, and golf carts, while Island Adventures offers bikes and 2- and 4-person surreys to rent by the hour, day, or week. One of our favorite rides is from the St. George Island Lighthouse down to St. George Island State Park—it’s the perfect way to burn off a lunch of conch fritters and local grouper at Blue Parrot Ocean Front Café!
If you’d rather get a taste of the high seas, Journeys of St. George Island is your go-to. They offer everything from paddleboard and kayak rentals to guided fishing tours and dolphin encounters for children. Another unbeatable experience is beach yoga with Island Fit. What could beat a rejuvenating yoga session with the sound of the waves rolling in and the feeling of sand between your toes? Island Fit also offers stand-up paddleboard lessons and excursions for those who want to an active way to see the beauty of the island’s waters.
As a bonus for booking a home-away-from-home with us at Resort Vacation Properties, you will earn credit for FREE beach gear! Equipment available ranges from lounge chairs and beach wagons to kayaks and bikes for both kids and adults. And, of course, you’ll be able to let the rest of the Island know you vacay in style with Resort Vacation Properties’ signature red and white striped beach umbrellas.
The historic Cape St. George Lighthouse is not to be missed. Check out the museum for the landmark’s fascinating backstory or venture up the twisted staircase of the lighthouse to experience breathtaking views. For a truly unforgettable experience, visit for the monthly Full Moon Climb, when moon lovers can enjoy the sunset and moonrise with light hors d’oeuvres and a toast of sparkling cider. Admission is $15 for the general public or $10 for members of the St. George Lighthouse Association, and be sure to get there early—space is limited.
