The East End
The residential section of the island lying between The Gulf Beaches section and the Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park, while not actually the “end” of the island, is referred to by locals as “The East End.” Originally sold in the 1970s as large tracts ranging from five to fourteen acres each, those tracts have eventually developed as a variety of small subdivisions, some gated and most maintaining a density of one home per acre. Exceptions to the density rule are the 99-unit Townhomes at Three Hundred Ocean Mile, and the Mediterranean themed gated community of Sunset Beach. A variety of home styles can be found on the East End, from simple beach cottages to lavish homes on estate-size parcels. Pedestrian access to the beach or bay on the East End is primarily by private easements.
