Have you ever wanted to own your own private island? Once belonging to the Spanish and the French, home to pirates, planters, prisoners and millionaires, Jekyll Island, Georgia was officially reopened to the public in December of 1954. Today this small island, with a land area of a little over 17.3 miles, beckons nature lovers, golf lovers, families and those seeking a quiet escape from reality.
