After we left Fort Pulaski, we drove into Tybee Island, which is located near the city of Savannah and is the easternmost point in the state of Georgia. Census as of 2010 shows the population of Tybee Island to be 2,990. Property prices on the island are extremely high, so I don’t think we’ll be buying property there anytime soon and increasing the census numbers.
Tybee Island has a lot of really neat things to do on the island. One can go bicycling, visit the lighthouses on Cockspur and Tybee Island (yes, there are TWO lighthouses), go kayaking, swim or lie on the beach, take a dolphin tour, or go deep sea fishing. There are restaurants galore and little shops and boutiques to visit, or simply just sit and take in the beauty of the island. Any choice that one makes, won’t be a bad choice, as there is simply so much here to choose from.
The beach on Tybee Island is quite pristine and I can imagine it being well utilized in the summer months. There are TONS of vacation homes on the island for rent as well. The sights and smells of this area remind me of my home in southern New Jersey, with the tidal marshes and backwaters for miles on end. If we were going to be in the area during the summer months, we would definitely be spending time on this beach.
