Recreation Facilities

With an average of more than 220 sunny days in the Golden Isles every year, Epworth By The Sea is a destination for outdoor recreation year-round. Whether you want to bike around St. Simons Island, cast a line in the Frederica River, or cool off in the pool on a hot summer day, we have everything you’ll need to make the most out of your stay.

Seasonal Pool

Open during the summer months, our outdoor swimming pool is perfect for cooling off on a hot day or lounging on the deck as you catch up with friends. At a size of 70 x 40 feet with a maximum depth of 10 feet, the swimming pool can accommodate usage by groups large and small.

Tennis Courts

Our tennis courts are popular with groups of all ages. The well-lit courts allow for play even after the sun sets.

Covered Basketball Courts

Youth groups love our covered basketball courts. The roof protects them from the elements and lights allow for play after the sun sets.

Bike Rentals

Affordable rental bikes are available for guests to tour the grounds and St. Simons Island, which features over 30 miles of bike trails. Stop by the main lobby to secure your rental and pick up a map.

Fire Pits

Perfect for roasting s’mores or a communal evening bonfire, our three fire pits encourage gathering and connecting outside of the traditional settings.

Fishing Piers

The Jones and Johnson Piers are open to guests for fishing or simply relaxing. Fishing equipment is not available on site; however, guests are welcome to bring their own.

GaGa Pits

This is the arena for a fast-paced, dodgeball-style game played with a single ball and two or more players. Like dodgeball, the object of the game is to knock out your opponents by hitting them with the ball. Talk about fun!
