Where to stay in Tybee Island

About Tybee Island

Set on a barrier island off the coast of Georgia, Tybee Island is a beautiful beach town that has long played an important role in the coastal protection of the United States. Historic lighthouses and forts surround its wide sandy beaches and it offers museums and a marine centre to explore.

Things to do

Climb the 187 steps that lead up the Tybee Island Light Station, a black-and-white landmark that stands as Georgia’s oldest and tallest lighthouse. It boasts magnificent views over the Savannah River Entrance and features a beautifully preserved keeper’s house below.

Across from the Tybee Island Light Station is Fort Screven's Battery Garland, a coastal defence first used during the Spanish American War. Explore its museum showcasing the history of Tybee Island, where a World War II submarine periscope serves as a highlight.

Visit the site of a fierce Civil War battle between the Confederates and Union soldiers at the Fort Pulaski National Monument. Witness the bunks where prisoners were housed and the cannon fire damage that’s still visible in the solid brick walls, as well as the room where Colonel Olmstead surrendered to the Union Army in 1862.

Want to get up close to local marine life? Head to the Tybee Island Marine Science Center to see baby alligators, loggerhead sea turtles and spider crabs. Animal feedings and guided beach walks are conducted throughout the day and there’s a Creature Cam where you can get a better view of some of the ocean’s smallest organisms.

Getting around

Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport lies around 45 minutes’ drive from Tybee Island, while the city of Savannah is about 20 minutes away. A bicycle is the best way to get around the island and the downtown area is easy to explore on foot.
