Chatham County Georgia Islands

Wassaw Island

Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge

This 10,070-acre barrier island features a tidal salt marsh, two smaller islands (collectively known as Little Wassaw Island), several small hammocks.

Wassaw Island, with approximately 25 miles of boundary or shoreline, is comprised of 76 percent salt marsh, 24 percent beach dune and upland forest communities, roads, trails, and administrative land.

Seven miles of undeveloped beach provides nesting habitat for the threatened Loggerhead sea turtle. Numerous species of shorebirds visit this spectacular beach.


The Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge is located 14 miles southeast of the city of Savannah Georgia. The refuge is only accessible by boat.

Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge is bordered by the Wilmington River and Wassaw Sound on the north, the Vernon River and Ossabaw Sound on the South, and the Atlantic Ocean on the east. Salt marsh and tidal creeks separate the refuge from the mainland and Skidaway Island to the west.
