The historic community of Eulonia is 0.6 miles (1.0 km) north of the crossroads. US 17 leads south 11 miles (18 km) to Darien, the county seat, and north 15 miles (24 km) to Riceboro.

I-95, which forms the western edge of the Eulonia CDP, leads north 52 miles (84 km) to Savannah and south 28 miles (45 km) to Brunswick.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Eulonia CDP has a total area of 3.3 square miles (8.5 km2), of which 0.05 square miles (0.13 km2), or 1.43%, are water.[2] The tidal Sapelo River forms the northern edge of the CDP and runs out to the Atlantic Ocean 15 miles (24 km) to the east at Sapelo Sound.


Many of Eulonia's residents are members of the Gullah ethnic group of African Americans, some of whom also live on nearby Sapelo Island. The McIntosh County Shouters, a Gullah traditional music group, perform regularly at Eulonia's Mt. Calvary Baptist Church.[citation needed]
