Georgia gem-Tybee Island

Georgia  gem-Tybee Island
Three miles of white sandy beach, ocean waves, sunrises over fishing piers, a towering lighthouse and lush marshlands streaming with beautiful birds! That’s just part of what you will experience in Tybee Island, a barrier island loaded with different things to see and do. There are also many different restaurants to enjoy with fresh seafood straight from the Georgia coast!

Great ice cream can be found to cool you down after a day at the beach or shopping in the neat little stores in the area. Nightlife abounds and so many daytime activities are just moments away. The beach is just gorgeous and looking for seashells is always a favorite pastime. I enjoyed photographing so many different gems of beauty from little crabs, tidal pools, birds, jellyfish, and patterns in the sand. To see my favorites, click here.

 

Tybee Island Light Station

The Tybee Island Light Station is one of the nicest lighthouses I have ever seen. Its bold oreo pattern is striking towering above the red roof of the keepers’ house. There is a very nice gift shop and a few rooms with historic furniture, appliances and other historical items. We climbed the 178 steps to the top where you could get a great view of the ocean and Battery Garland of Fort Screven. There is a museum in the Battery. Parking is free but there are fees to go into the lighthouse.

 

 Some of our favorite places to eat!

We ate ice cream from both The Sugar Shack and Seaweeds. We preferred The Sugar Shack as our reflections in the window tell.

We also ate at Sting Rays Seafood which was good but not the best. It was also pretty smoky outside so we had to sit inside next to the kitchen door which was a bit annoying. I'd give it a 7.

The Breakfast Club was an excellent choice one morning. It has a long history and is one of the most famous restaurants on the island.  Get there early as they do get busy and do not have a very large dining are. It's definately a 9!

 

Fannies On The Beach was a great place to eat. We were lucky to get a spot upstairs out on the balcony and the view was amazing! The food was good but the cocktails were a bit week. I would give this a 9 out of 10 and would definitely go there again.
