The natural woodlands and shimmering lakes accented by wildlife and plants too numerous to name set the tone for a quiet experience to relax and inspire you, and at the same time, provide a stunning background for a day of adventure.
Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center
Experience 1,000 tropical butterflies, representing more than 50 different species, flutter freely through the air. Tropical plants and birds, reside peacefully with the colorful winged jewels in North America's largest, glass-enclosed tropical conservatory. The award-winning film, On Wings of Wonder, plays continuously on two wide-screen monitors in the center's multi-purpose room , explaining the life cycle of butterflies.

Every visit to the Day Butterfly Center is a new experience because this is a living, growing, environment. The butterfly conservatory was replanted in March 2005, so a brand new ecosystem grows here. The animals and the plants grow and change dramatically over time.

The number of butterflies you may see is influenced by:
BulletAmount of sunshine available
BulletSeason of the year
BulletRecently received butterfly shipments
BulletTemperature fluctuations
BulletStability of the ecosystem
BulletBe sure to visit frequently and experience the changes in this living environment.
Robin Lake Beach
You wouldn't expect a white sand beach in the middle of Georgia but that's exactly what you'll find at Robin Lake Beach in Callaway Gardens. This is the world's largest manmade, white sand beach–it stretches a mile around 65-acre Robin Lake. The Beach is the hub of summer activity at the Gardens and the center stage for our popular Summer Adventure program.

In addition to Iceberg Island*, swimming and sunbathing, guests may enjoy miniature golf, table tennis, shuffleboard, volleyball and paddle boats.

The spectacular Florida State University "Flying High" Circus has been in residence here every Summer since 1960. This troupe of talented college students performs seven thrilling shows weekly under the big top adjacent to the Beach. Their talents rival professional circuses, and their shows will keep you on the edge of your seat. Performances daily, except Wednesdays during Summer Adventure season.

There's also a Fitness Trail for exercise enthusiasts, a concession area for quick meals or snacks, picnic tables and the Sand Bucket shop for all your beach needs.

Robin Lake Beach is open May 31 through August 8. It closes on August 9 for the season, and reopens for August 29-31 for Labor Day and the Sky High Hot Air Balloon Festival.

*Iceberg Island - Fee: $5 per person per hour or $25 all-day admission. Last session begins at 5:00 p.m.
