Cabretta Bridge & Blackbeard Creek, Sapelo Island

Like all roads on Sapelo, the road to Cabretta Beach is devoid of even a stop sign and it’s usually a rough ride.

One of the prettiest views on the island is Blackbeard Creek as seen from this wooden bridge, built by the Department of Natural Resources.

 

Blackbeard Creek separates Cabretta Beach from Blackbeard Island, which is visible in the distance from the bridge.

Cabretta Beach, Sapelo Island

At the north end of Sapelo Island is Cabretta Beach, sometimes referred to as Cabretta Island for its isolation at high tide. If you can imagine a place more isolated than Nanny Goat Beach, Cabretta might come to mind.

The only land-based point of access is the Cabretta Campground, which requires reservations. It’s a pristine natural area with a small comfort station and a canopy of Live Oaks.

A short walk through the dunes provides access to one of the most undisturbed beaches in Coastal Georgia.

Sea Oats are dominant here, as they are on all of Georgia’s Sea Islands.

Like Nanny Goat Beach, Cabretta is a prime example of a barrier island environment that has never been developed.

It remains a favored fishing and crabbing spot for the Gullah-Geechee people who call the island home.
