There are actually a ton of islands off the Georgian coast that are ideal for warm-weather exploring. Whether you like to take it easy and lay on the beach or want to get active and go hiking or kayaking, the islands in Georgia are the place to be.

You may know about the easy-to-reach islands like Tybee Island or Jekyll island, but there are other more secluded islands that you may want to check out as well. Blackbeard Island is one of these hidden islands you need to discover next. 

It's a National Wildlife Refuge, which means you'll get the chance to come in contact with 5,618 acres of nature on this island.

You can access the island from sunrise until sunset as long as there aren't scheduled refuge hunts going on. Keep in mind, though, that there is no public transportation to the island, so you'll have to figure out a way to get there yourself. Boat day, anyone?

There are plenty of activities to do once you're on the island. You can go kayaking through stunning wetlands, hike through the tropical-looking landscape or search for sand dollars on the shore.

Since there are so many different-looking landscapes on the island, it's also an excellent place to take pictures.

Whether you're looking for the perfect selfie spot or want to shoot some nature photography, you're not going to run out of stunning places on the island to snap some pics.

Just remember, since this is a National Wildlife Refuge, you should make sure to respect the wildlife on the island. Pack out all of your trash and other belongings so you don't leave anything behind.

After all, you'll want other people to enjoy this island as much as you do. Keep in mind that pets are not permitted on the island so all the fur babies will need to stay at home.

If you are looking for a new Georgia island to explore, you won't want to miss out on this gorgeous hidden gem this spring and summer.
