Tybee Island Beach Vacations Georgia Hideaway
Greetings from Tybee Island, GA!
Tybee Island, Georgia is just 20 minutes east of the historic city of Savannah, but its appeal draws vacationers from all around. The word "Tybee" derives from the American Indian word "duh bee" for "salt" and the visitor to Tybee will immediately understand that the salt marshes define this island, marking its boundaries and weaving the spell of nature over the entire island. Birds, wildlife, and people are all attracted to the beauty of this place.
Vacationers delight in sharing this island with spectacular sea turtles that have made Tybee their nesting place. The endangered sea turtles return each year to nest from May 1 to October 31 and residents and visitors alike protect these magnificent creatures by giving them their privacy and never shining lights on them at night.
Tybee Island has all the restaurants, museums, nature walks and laid back atmosphere of an island with history and mother nature well preserved.
