5 Reasons Tybee is Good for your Health

As you probably know, the ocean is good for the mind, body, and soul. People travel far and wide to Tybee Island, not for the Sugar Shack, not even for the Crab Shack, but for the beach!

The beach heals!

Its healing effects are many. We go to the beach because deep down we know that the wind, sand and waves will wash our worries away. Here are just a few health benefits the beach has to offer:

Sunshine – Get your daily dose of vitamin D simply by vegging out for a few moments by the sea. Vitamin D is good for bone strength and immune support!







Stress Relief – The color blue, the sound of the waves, the sun shining on your face… what do they all have in common? They are incredibly soothing! Many people report getting a much better night’s sleep after a day at the beach.







Ample Opportunities to Exercise – The sand creates more resistance than pavement, so walking or running on the beach is more of a workout and really strengthens those muscles! Swimming is an exercise great for those with injuries or weak joints as it’s much gentler on the body.







Natural elements as beauty enhancers – Skip the expensive facial and let the sand and salt water air give your skin an all natural, sun kissed glow. Also, who doesn’t love a nice tan?










Swimming in Salt Water – The ocean’s salt water is full of natural minerals that the body needs, such as magnesium, potassium, and iodine. Magnesium alone is so beneficial for the brain and it helps relieve anxiety.

The beach is truly the best environment for healing – it has all sorts of natural elements that make it holistic – good for your mental, emotional, and physical well-being.  Plan your next getaway on Tybee Island with us today… it’s good for your health!


Exploring Little Tybee and Tybee Creek

Article, photos and videos straight from the boat of  Stacye Jarrell, owner of Oceanfront Cottage Rentals

Lannie and I enjoy boating around Tybee.  We are fortunate to live on Tybee Creek where our dock and boat are located. Lannie restored an older Boston Whaler and we just love taking it out to see what we can discover.

When the opportunity presents, we spend our free time exploring Little Tybee.  I want to share with you all some footage of us enjoying the beauty of our area.

We passed by AJ’s Dockside Restaurant  and headed over to Myrtle Island, one of the 18 islands that make up “Little Tybee.”  The first video is a great place to fish because of the giant, dead trees that are in the water as a result of a campfire that burned the area several years ago.

Later, we headed off to see Buck Hammock and then came back to the south bank of Tybee Creek.  The oyster rakes are beautiful and a great structure to fish.  We enjoyed looking at the homes at Spanish Hammock, and our ride ended with a beautiful sunset.

If you have ever tried to capture the beauty of dolphins jumping, you know how hard it is! One time we were lucky enough to capture a video of dolphins frolicking in Mosquito Ditch as we were cutting through Tybee Creek heading for a deserted beach on the Atlantic. That was another spectacular sunset evening.

Here is a fun video of our friend, Mac Kitchens, on his motorized stand up board on Tybee Creek.

Another day, we were on the sandbar that extends from the southern tip of Tybee overlooking Little Tybee, when a motorized parasailer flew by.  That was a neat experience!

When you are walking along the southernmost tip of Tybee, you can see Little Tybee Island. The term Tybee Creek is interchangeable with “Back River” by the locals. They are one and the same, so don’t get confused.

It is a joy to share the same love of boating and exploration of nature with your best friend and husband.  Thank you sweetheart for the ride!
