Get in that last-minute beach trip with a stay on Tybee Island. Your family will love exploring this Georgie barrier island with its wide-open beaches, perfect waves, and delicious seafood.
If you’re concerned about warm temperatures, don’t be. We’ve got great ways to cool off.
Make a Splash
Of course, you’ll want to spend a lot of time in the water. After all, the Atlantic Ocean is steps away from anywhere you find yourself on the island. Jump right in. Ride those waves.
Relax at the Beach
You have great choices with River Beach, North Beach, Mid Beach, and South Beach. Pick your spot and cool off in the ocean breeze.
Rent an Umbrella
Burke’s Beach Rentals, Inc. brings comfort to you with beach chairs and umbrella delivery and set up. They get there early, so you have a great setup waiting for you. Enjoy the shade, and take a dip once in a while.
Take the Pool Plunge
Splash Inn provides access to not one but two pools. Swim in the private pool in your backyard or the community pool is also available. One Particular Harbor offers two bedrooms, an open layout, and a short walk to the pool.
Sip a Cold Brew
Huc-A-Poos Bites and Booze is a fuss-free roadhouse serving cold drinks and hot pizza. Or enjoy a cold beer on the deck at Coco’s Sunset Grille. A frozen concoction can also cool you off, so head to Wet Willie’s where there’s a whole wall of them. This island is full of great watering holes.
Enjoy a Frozen Treat
Nothing cools you off at the beach like ice cream or a snow cone. Seaweeds on Butler Avenue is a favorite spot for both. Seaside Sweets gets high marks for its made-to-order gelato. Or go the more traditional route with Beau & Arrow’s Frozen Yogurt and Ben & Jerry’s.
Book a boat tour with Crab Creek Charters, which allows you to plan your adventure with island hopping, beachcombing, a sunset cruise, or dolphin watching. Captain Mike’s Dolphin Tours our of Lazaretto Creek Marina also provides a great time on the water.
Water, Water, Water
Stay hydrated. Whether you’re at the beach or the pool, keep plenty of cold water handy.
