St Catherines

From Openwaterpedia

St. Catherines Island, also known as Santa Catalina, is one of the barrier islands or Golden Isles on the coast of the American state of Georgia, 50 miles (80 km) south of Savannah in Liberty County.

The island is ten miles (16 km) long and from one to three miles (5 km) wide, located between St. Catherine's Sound and Sapelo Sound. More than half of its 14,640 acres (59 km²) are tidal marsh and wetlands. About half of it is salt marshes, about a quarter is wooded, and it has "fine" beaches. It is owned by a foundation and is not open to the public.
