Used as a location for the movie Glory, this pristine beach at the south end of Jekyll Island has come to be known as Glory Beach in the years since. An important nesting habitat for sea turtles, it offers unspoiled views of Cumberland Island (seen in the distance) and is a great place to get away from the crowds.
