You may be wondering, "What accommodations are available to have a safe, budget-conscious, and relaxing extended stay on Tybee Island?" Many of our lodging companies have taken additional measures to secure strong Wi-Fi connections as well as extensive cleaning protocols to ensure the health and safety of their guests. In addition, several of Tybee’s vacation rentals and hotels are offering special deals for those looking for a few weeks of "vitamin sea". Be sure to look into one of the larger vacation homes if you need extra room for everyone to spread out and focus. Our advice: claim the porch space for that coastal breeze and view.

Educational Activities

Tybee Island is filled with rich history and culture waiting to be explored. Take a break from the computer screen to climb the 178 steps to the top of the Tybee Island Lighthouse, Georgia's oldest and tallest lighthouse. Explore the museum grounds afterward to bring some interesting facts back to your child's virtual classroom. Dive into a hands-on history lesson at Fort Pulaski National Monument or get up close and personal with Tybee’s marine life at the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. To combine history and coastal life, hop on a kayak tour with Aqua Dawg Kayak Company where you can paddle to the Cockspur Island Lighthouse to learn about its unique story.

Lunch Breaks on the Beach

Let the sun shine down on you when you spend your lunch break outside at one of Tybee’s outdoor dining options! Grab a seafood lunch plate on A-J’s Dockside Restaurant’s vibrant patio or enjoy a Caribbean-inspired dish on the newly renovated deck of North Beach Bar & Grill. For a beach breeze, take a seat at Tybee’s only beachfront restaurant, The Deck Beach Bar & Kitchen. Chow down on an island dish and sink your toes in the sand before getting back to work. Better yet, grab a beach chair and umbrella to work right on the beach!
