Great Dunes Park is located on Jekyll Island's North Beachview Drive, across the road from a mini-golf course, a playground, and bike and Segway rentals and it is a great launching spot for a day trip to Jekyll Island. Leave the car at Great Dunes Park and rent bikes for the whole family; there are more than 20 miles of wonderful bike trails on the island to explore. The park is used regularly by the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, which is located across the island, as a release site for rehabilitated sea turtles. Many local annual festivals and events are also held at Great Dunes Park. You can spend the whole day here - the park has grills, picnic pavilions, a covered deck, restrooms, a spacious grassy area, and bike racks. The park has easy access to Jekyll Island's beach.
