Off-the-Beaten-Path at Tybee Island
If you’re looking for an intimate setting, the Desoto Beach Bed and Breakfast and Lighthouse Inn Bed and Breakfast are ideal hideaways for Tybee Island romance. For dinner, discover fine dining at its best in an unlikely location at Sundae Café and enjoy gourmet food that rivals any of historic downtown Savannah’s upscale restaurants. Sip a Key Lime Martini and sample the spicy Tuna Tacos, the Fried Green Tomato BLT or try the Sweet Potato Crusted Grouper as your entrée. (Yum!)
Picnics and exploration more your style?
Pack a cooler and head to Tybee Island Marina for an afternoon cruise and find a quiet spot to anchor for a spectacular sunset. Order a chilled shrimp-cocktail from Marlin Monroe’s Surfside Grill or a pizza to-go from Lighthouse Pizza and spread out on a blanket in the sand for the perfect picnic. Don’t forget the wine!
Early risers can start the day with the Smackjack Breakfast Burrito at The Breakfast Club. However, if you decide to enjoy a late wake up call, rent bike gear at Fat Tire Bike Rentals and cruise down to Strand Avenue to Fannie’s on the Beach and sip Mimosas and Bloody Marys on the upper deck. In the mood to linger? Walk downtown Tybee and explore the eclectic assortment of shops on Strand Avenue. Up for some action? Head over to Sea Kayak Georgia to spend the afternoon paddling through Tybee’s creeks and marshes. Or, just find a great spot on the beach for some rest and relaxation!
Up for a cocktail-hour extravaganza? Head to North Beach Grill, a quaint beach shack by the sea and order the fresh seafood fritters and a cold craft beer, followed by a Mango Margarita at A-J’s Dockside Restaurant, the absolute best spot to catch Tybee’s beautiful sunset, and top it off with a pitcher of Social Sangria at Tybee Island Social Club and feast on the ‘love me tender’ duck or short rib tacos for dinner.
No matter what your preference or taste, if you live in the southern hemisphere, Tybee Island is an easy to access local getaway for food, wine, and relaxation lovers everywhere.
