Actually Jekyll is the only island that requires a toll in the area. Its $5 per day. And this is due to it being state owned and operated. St. Simons used to require a $0.35 toll each time you crossed the bridges but it has been done away with. Amelia Island (aka Fernandina Beach) is really nice too. Ive stayed several weekends there and always have a good time.
