TYBEE ISLAND – “TOP 10 CITY BEACHES IN AMERICA” – AOL.com
Soak up the sun and surf.
Slow your pace. Restore your soul.
Drive 20 minutes east of Savannah, Georgia, through a few miles of wide sky and salt marshes. This is where you will find Tybee Island — perhaps the most laid-back location on the southeastern coast.
On this uniquely charmed island, nature lovers mingle with movie stars and bird watchers with good ol boys. Pirate raids are regular happenings. There are parties of epic proportions and silent beach sunrises. And everyone on Tybee Island, from townie to tourist, watches out for the sea turtles.
There are miles of beach, forts and museums and a great old lighthouse; endangered birds and other animal species; kayaks and bikes to rent (along with all kinds of hotels, motels, cottage and condo rentals too). Days on Tybee Island are as active, or lazy, as mood demands. Local galleries, shops and restaurants offer changes of pace and taste. And, of course, historic Savannah’s nearby.
Tybee Island is the beautiful barrier island on the Georgia Coast that ancient Indians named \”salt\” (duh bee in the old Euchee tongue)—and a place you\’ll wish that you, too, had discovered long ago.
