Where to Stay at Tybee Island, GA
There are a lot of places to stay here but below is the one that I can personally recommend.
Tybee Vacation Rentals
Located in Historic Savannah, this rental company has over 300 choices available. We stayed at the Sassy Seagull Vacation Rental and it was amazing.
The kitchen was stocked and the rental literally had everything that we needed. It was also exceptionally clean and super simple to get to and from as we went about our day.
With so many options to choose from, check out their online portal to see what is available. Book fast as they fill up quickly – and for good reason.
Places to Eat at Tybee Island, GA
Plan on eating your way through the town! With so many tasty choices, I’ve narrowed it down to these places that we were able to snack on and enjoy every bite.
The Crab Shack
Calling all seafood fans! The Crab Shack has everything you could want. Dine on the crab or opt for anything else on their menu. You really can’t go wrong.
This is quite a popular place so there might be a wait. I also recommend the Georgia shrimp, as well. If you can snag some outdoor seating, do so. The view is amazing.
Pier 16 Seafood Restaurant
This is a great place to eat dinner. Pier 16 is a locally owned restaurant that has a relaxed vibe with incredible views. Since they’re just one block from the beach, you know it’s a great place. I highly recommend trying some of their gourmet burgers.
They also have awesome cocktails that are unique and delicious and a vast variety of wines, too.
Start off your day with breakfast here at the Sunrise Breakfast. They’ve been feeding bellies since 1987 and are still going strong! So many delicious breakfast options!
Grab dessert at the Sugar Shack. You can literally get a simple dessert or ask what is the fan favorite and order that. Super popular and busy but a great way to treat your sweet tooth.
Tybean Art & Coffee Bar
Fuel your body and mind at the Tybean Art & Coffee Bar. Order a coffee or a smoothie or more! Check out the art while you’re waiting, too!

It’s not a guarantee to see them but there is a pretty good probability that you will!
