The Cockspur Island Light is the smallest lighthouse in Georgia located in Chatham County, Georgia. It ceased operation as an active beacon in 1909. It has been relit since 2007 for historical rather than navigational purposes. The lighthouse is situated on an islet off Cockspur Island at the south channel of the Savannah River near Lazaretto Creek, northwest of Tybee Island, Georgia. It is part of Fort Pulaski National Monument and can be reached from that site. The island is subject to tidal flooding and as a result transportation to the lighthouse is most often by small boat, but can be accessed by crossing a small body of water from Cockspur Island. This is approximately 4 to 5 feet (1.5 m) deep at low tide and does have a current, so crossing on foot or by swimming is not advisable.

You can kayak out here, which was neat after having driven past it on the bridge so many times. THAT BEING SAID, the wind and tides made it a challenging paddle out. And also, every square inch of the island, only reachable at low tide, is covered in razor-sharp shells that will slice your feet up into ribbons. You'll prolly see dolphins, too. Cute!
