Cumberland Island National Seashore
The Cumberland Island National Seashore is the largest and southernmost barrier island in Georgia, offering guests over 17 miles of secluded white, sandy beaches. Wild horses and other island wildlife roam freely throughout the ruins and along the beach. Glimpses of the Carnegie lifestyle can be easily imagined throughout the ruins of Dungeness, abandoned luxury vehicles, Plum Orchard, and Greyfield Inn.
The island is a complex ecological system of interdependent animal and plant communities. A system of foredunes protects the interdune meadow and shrub thickets. A canopy of live oak trees stretches out beyond the back dunes that provide protection from the salt spray. For more information, you can go to The Cumberland Island National Seashore website .
