Our mission: As stewards of Jekyll Island’s past, present and future, we’re dedicated to maintaining the delicate balance between nature and humankind.

JIA has set up parameters to protect the island’s ecosystem, while ensuring it remains an inviting destination for guests. We oversee the conservation, development and management of Jekyll Island, and rely on operating revenues from leases, fees, and island amenity operations.
