Holiday in Tybee Island

Orientation

A quiet island destination

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

Savannah - Hilton Head International Airport is just 45 minutes drive from Tybee Island which is then reached on the GA-26 / US-80 road. This takes you through Savannah and is the island's only vehicular access.

Activities

A destination for beach lovers

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. South Beach is a lively spot with plenty of dining opportunities while if you are lucky you might spot dolphins from the quieter North Beach.

A destination for water activities

When you have had your fill of swimming and sunbathing, then take boat trips or kayak tours that guide you through the salt marshes, coastal waterways, and rivers of the island and neighboring areas. Stand-up paddleboarding, sailing, and jet-skiing can also be enjoyed while South Beach is popular for surfing.

A nature lovers delight

Take a boat trip to nearby Little Tybee Island, a real wilderness delight. Although called Little Tybee Island it is actually more than twice the size of its neighbor, Tybee Island! Subtropical forests of palm trees and oaks border pristine beaches and sand dunes. Here lazy days can be spent birdwatching and beachcombing or if you feel more energetic hiking in the forest.

The island is in the Guinness Book of World Records thanks to a 1995 painting created in a car park. Local art students painted an image of Elvis which at 76,726 square feet was the world's largest ever painting.

Top 5 things to do in Tybee Island

1. Climb to the top of Georgia's tallest lighthouse

Not only the tallest in the state, Tybee Island Light Station is also its oldest and one of just a few 18th-century lighthouses still operating in America. Today, it is painted black and white as it was in the early 20th-century.

2. Get hands-on in the aquarium

The Tybee Island Marine Science Center has something for all ages with its touch tanks and interactive child-friendly exhibits.

3. A defensive history

The Tybee Island Museum can be found at Fort Screven's Battery Garland. This fort was built during the Spanish American War and today visitors can still view its original batteries, beach fortifications, military hardware, and the Officer's Row.

4. Fort Pulaski National Monument

This imposing fort was built during the American Civil War to protect Savannah and at one point came under siege. You can still see cannon fire damage on its thick brick walls.

5. A day trip to Savannah

This historic town was the birthplace of Georgia and was first settled in 1733 by British colonists. Largely undamaged by the civil war, it is one of the few major southern cities of the USA that still displays plenty of antebellum architecture and historic charm.

Useful Information

Since 1987, Tybee Island has celebrated Memorial Day in May with an annual Beach Bum Parade. This event is a reflection of the island's laidback beach culture and sees a parade of floats along with plenty of fun as onlookers and participants shoot each other with water-guns. Be prepared to get wet!
