So, it’s the time of year when you can pack away winter coats and think about your summer vacation. Tybee Island makes the perfect escape as a barrier island on the Atlantic Ocean. The memories made on a beach vacation last a lifetime.
Book Your Stay
Start your summer adventure with awesome accommodations. Our Tybee Island vacation rentals offer comfortable, well-appointed, and convenient spots to take off your shoes and lay your head. You’ll want to consider your budget, of course, along with the best location. Fortunately, we have properties to meet every need.
Food makes up a big part of a vacation budget, but it’s also an essential part of traveling.
Taste local cuisine and experience the region’s food culture at favorites like Bernie’s Oyster House, Bubba Gumbos, Coco’s Sunset Grille, and the Original Crab Shack. Prepare some meals at a vacation property with a gourmet kitchen, like the four-bedroom Catalina Comfort and the three-bedroom Salty Shores. Throw burgers on the grill and enjoy the outdoor dining areas.
Of course, you’ll spend time on our beautiful shorelines! Tybee’s four beaches offer warm, gentle waves where your family can pitch an umbrella and beach chair to enjoy the day. Don’t forget sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses, along with plenty of water and snacks.
A boat excursion in search of dolphins is one of the adventures that make lifetime memories. After all, everyone turns into a kid when they spot those fins break the surface. Book with Captain Mike’s Dolphin Tours or Captain Derek’s Dolphin Adventure Tour.
Paddleboarding and kayaking are other water activities the entire family can enjoy. East Coast Paddleboarding offers lessons, kids camps, rentals, and tours on our beautiful waterways. No worries if you’ve never done it. Our flat waterways are great for trying something new.
Take in a Show
The historic Tybee Post Theater, a 1930s-era venue that once served the military, now hosts musical acts and movies. The summer schedule includes tributes to Pink Floyd and the Eagles.
Connect with Nature
The Tybee Island Marine Science Center offers authentic coastal experiences to learn about the local ecosystems. The new facility also schedules Sea Camp for the kids; Walks, Talks and Treks; and private programs for families.
Watch a Sunset
The best way to end an incredible vacation day is sitting on your deck, balcony, or Back River Beach to watch the sky change colors as the sunsets.
