Tybee Island Travel Tips
Stay in one of the beautiful Tybee Island vacation rentals through Vacation Home Rentals and enjoy the unique experience this Savannah beach has to offer. You’ll save money with any of these by-owner rentals, from the Tybee Island condo rentals to elaborate beachfront properties. A family getaway on this fascinating island off the Georgia coast offers outdoor recreation, unspoiled beaches, and a laid-back environment you won’t forget.
With miles of pristine beaches, you can plan the trip of a lifetime with the waves and surf right outside the door of many of our Tybee Island beach house rentals. Have your own direct access to the beach and save the hassle of long walks with armfuls of toys and tots. There is no need to stress over items you forgot to pack since Tybee offers many beach gear rental stores. You can even rent bikes for the whole family and do some exploring on your own.
There is no overnight sleeping or camping allowed on the beach, but you can enjoy the beautiful dusk views in your slippers from many of the Tybee Island beach rentals. The beach does have lifeguards. They ask that you maximize your enjoyment by swimming within 50 yards of the shoreline and staying out of the dunes.
You won’t find a more enchanting attraction than the Georgia coast itself. You can explore the five miles of clean sand and gentle waves. You can float in the peaceful waters or even ride a bike along the shore at low tide when the sands are firm and flat. The super-fine sand is from the Appalachian Mountains upstream and makes for excellent sand castles and a sold, comfortable surface for walking.
There are many ideal locations for spotting dolphins, bird-watching, and even seeing international ships at one of the nation’s busiest ports. Don’t forget to stop by the Tybee Light Station, the tallest and oldest lighthouse in Georgia. Spend leisurely days fishing in the mornings and exploring original artwork at a local gallery in the afternoon.
If you are looking to take a day trip off the island, the options are limitless. A quick drive from any of the Tybee Island rentals puts you in the heart of Savannah, GA. You won’t want to miss a trip to Fort Pulaski
or Skidaway Island
