Tybee Island Beach vacation rentals

Living the easy life, Tybee Island style

Nestled 30 minutes from Savannah, Tybee Island is surrounded by miles of nothing but unpretentious beaches. With obscenely beautiful sunsets and a history dating back to 16th-century Spanish explorers, this picturesque spot is a choice destination for those whose wanderlust isn’t easily satiated by traditional seaside getaways. The setting is reminiscent of old-timey beach life—a throwback to retro surf culture, when manners mattered and quaint was cool. Tybee Island Beach vacation rentals are just steps from the water’s edge and offer a wistful ambiance that recall the glory of Gone With the Wind.

Dolphins, beach cruisers and shopping…oh my, Tybee Island

Gazing at the sunset is a definite bucket list item here, but it would be criminal to book a Tybee Island Beach vacation rental without going fishing, booking a guided dolphin tour or birdwatching along the coastline. Indulge the athletic side—and burn off the margarita cals—by renting a bike for the beach or six-mile McQueen’s Island Trail. Feeling adventurous? Snag a beach cruiser (cup holder for an ice-cold brew included) and explore the area’s flat terrain. Engaging in retail therapy is completely welcome, too, particularly if you fancy locally designed goods.

More than beach living, Tybee Island is deeply historic

Built in 1736, the Tybee Island Light Station has a beam that still assists Savannah River navigators and a rather lofty 178-step climb to its highest point—worth the trip for a panoramic view of the island. Peep the Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion for some live music before venturing to the legendary Tybee Museum. Inside a late 19th-century artillery battery, it’s jam-packed with artifacts celebrating the island’s rich history. People rent Tybee Island Beach vacation rentals for proximity to the water, so a visit to the Tybee Island Marine Science Center is definitely apropos.

Sunshine days—and a light sprinkle—on Tybee Island

The beauty of Tybee Island is that it’s not too anything—its temperatures are moderate and pleasant at any time of the year. Crowds descend during the summertime. Rainfall is sparse and tends to be heaviest in August. You’ll love spending time in your Tybee Island Beach vacation rental when temperatures drop come January, but otherwise it’s a relaxed climate that encourages outdoor living to the extreme. Even the fall and winter months are generally mild—meaning a beach bike ride isn’t entirely out of the question.

On Tybee Island, nature and wildlife share the spotlight

After venturing to Savannah’s historic district, continue your leisurely adventures on Tybee Island—it’s just 20 miles away and is surrounded by five miles of sandy public beaches. The island itself measures a humble 2.75 square miles, and it's unlikely you’ll ever need to look at a gas station. Bike paths and winding trails provide optimal spots to tour offbeat neighborhoods canopied by thick trees. Watch for endangered sea turtles, which lovingly nest on the beaches from May through October. Feel free to look, but never touch—the marine animals are content to sit and look pretty for you!
