Holiday in Tybee Island
Tybee Island lies just east of Savannah on Georgia's Atlantic coastline. As well as being a popular vacation destination, the island is a weekend getaway for Savannah's residents. It is one of a chain of sea islands that dot the Georgia shoreline and has sandy beaches, a tidal salt marsh, and a forested interior.Tybee Island - a piratical history
Tybee Island was probably first settled by the Euchee tribe who used dugout canoes to navigate its waterways. In the Euchee language, Tybee means 'salt'. Spanish settlers arrived in the early 16th-century and it was during this period that Tybee Island became a refuge for pirates. As a result of English Spanish hostilities, the island was largely uninhabited by the 18th-century except for lighthouse keepers and soldiers manning its defenses.Getting there

The main attraction of Tybee Island is its beautiful shoreline where the beaches are lapped by warm water and covered in firm sand perfect for building sandcastles, making it a family-friendly destination.
