We visit St. Simons multiple times each year, and I used to live here as well. East Beach at the old Coast Guard station is my no. 1 beach! First of all, it's wide enough that there is still some beach left at high tide. Second, dogs! Even when I don't bring my own dog, I love seeing dogs on the beach. Third, good amenities including a nice bathhouse, a concession place, and plenty of sand-washing-off spots. However, be aware that on holiday weekends, spring break, and sometimes just summer Saturdays, the parking lot fills up by 11:00 and the cars are lined up on the streets beyond the parking lot. Try to get there by 10 or earlier on such days or go later in the afternoon.
