Welcome to Coastal Georgia Cottages
This small barrier island is just 18 miles east of Savannah and boasts its natural charm few beaches have preserved. Its 3-mile long beach that's backed by sea oat-covered sand dunes is perfect for sunbathing & frolicking in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Head for the shore to swim, surf, or bask in the sun. For many decades pirates visited the islands in search of a safe haven and hiding place for treasure. The Spanish laid claim to the island in 1520 as part of Spain's "La Florida" which extended at that time from Nova Scotia to the Bahamas.
Dolphins seen regularly at the beach enchant humans like no other sea creature. For a closeup view, schedule a dolphin tour. Several charter companies offer marshland tours and fishing guide services. Tybee is a resort complete with a full range of restaurants, art galleries, museum, lighthouse, forts, fishing pier, recreational tours, marine science center, arts & crafts, shops, boat, jetski & bike rentals, parasailing & much more.
