Drive 20 minutes east of Savannah, Georgia, through a few miles of wide sky and salt marshes. This is where you’ll find Tybee Island — perhaps the most laid-back location on the southeastern coast. On this uniquely charmed island tthere are parties of epic proportions and silent beach sunrises. And everyone on Tybee Island, from townie to tourist, watches out for the sea turtles.

There are miles of beach; forts and museums and a great old lighthouse; endangered birds and other animal species; kayaks and bikes to rent (along with all kinds of hotels, motels, cottage and condo rentals too).

Tybee Island is the beautiful barrier island on the Georgia Coast that ancient Indians named “salt” (“duh bee” in the old Euchee tongue)—and a place you’ll wish that you, too, had discovered long ago.

Tybee has over 30 unique shops and 35 restaurants where fresh local seafood is a staple on menus island wide. “There’s always something happening on Tybee!” is the island’s motto and it certainly lives up to it. Each month there’s something going on to please all ages and interests. You’ll also find accommodations to suit almost every visitor or budget. We have wonderful oceanfront hotels, charming inns and B&Bs, convenient motels, and rental properties.

Tybee also loves its parades, boasting five each year! The arts abound on Tybee with several local galleries to choose from and many performances to attend throughout the year. For those who love to get outdoors beyond the beach, explore Tybee’s nature and bike trails, kayak, fish or even go bird watching…the options are endless. Or head to Tybee’s most popular attractions: The Tybee Lighthouse, Fort Pulaski and the Marine Science Center.
