Scenic Spots to Sip Chardonnay
A gorgeous sunset and chilled chardonnay – is there a better combination!? The annual Tybee Island Wine Festival is right around the corner, and to celebrate, we’ve rounded up where we love to relax with wine on Tybee Island.
1. The Back River
It’s no secret that Tybee’s Back River has some of the best sunset views on the island. Pack some snacks and your favorite wine for memorable and picturesque evening.
2. By the pier
Get the group together for a swinging beach bash – and don’t forget to pack plenty of beach-friendly wine cartons! You and your friends will have plenty of Instagram-worthy moments as you soak up the sun and sip chardonnay.
The Deck Beach Bar & Kitchen is one of Tybee Island’s newest additions, and it’s Tybee’s only absolute beachfront restaurant and bar. Here, you can dine on foodie favorites like the Smashed Avocado or Fish Tacos, and pair your meal with a bottle of wine from the menu.
4. The swings on North Beach
Snuggle close to your lover – chardonnay in hand – while slowly swaying on North Beach’s iconic swings. Just don’t swing too fast – you don’t want to spill any of that delicious wine!
5. Tybee Island Wine Festival grounds
Each year, the annual Tybee Island Wine Festival offers plenty of international wine, local food, live music and tons of fun! Sample wines from around the globe as you enjoy the Tybee Island Light Station‘s gorgeous lawn. Learn more about the festival’s many events here.
*Although glass is not permitted on Tybee Island’s beaches, there are plenty of beach-friendly wine containers like cartons, plastic bottles and plastic cups. Many of Tybee’s restaurants and bars sell wine by the glass, and you can take yours to-go in a plastic cup!
