Tybee Island Light Station
The lighthouse has been shining its light and guiding the way for over 270 years. It is Georgia’s oldest and tallest lighthouse, and one of the most intact and historic lighthouses in America. For history buffs, another great destination is the Fort Pulaski National Monument, which preserves Fort Pulaski.
You may not know this but Tybee Island is home to bottlenose dolphins. Several dolphin tours are available that offer up close views and sunset cruises. There are also Kayak tours to explore the coast for yourself.
Bird Watchers from around the world head to the North Beach Birding Trail. North Beach is a great spot to see sandpipers, plovers, and other unique seabirds. Also, located on North Beach is the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. The science center has touch tanks and other natural exhibits.
Tybee Island Farmers Market
Running from March 14 to October 2022, the Tybee Island Farmers Market is a summer treat. Located behind the historic Tybee Island Lighthouse every Monday, the Farmers Market offers great food, produce, and local art.
