Sundae Cafe

The late and revered Chef Kevin Carpenter has left behind a legacy with Sundae Cafe, 80e Gastropub, and the latest addition – The Cafe on 80.  Caitlin and Julianna both agree – you must try the spicy tuna wrap!

80e Gastropub

Krystal says they have the best wings on the island – hands down! This modern pub has a great atmosphere with many flat-screen TV’s to watch your favorite sports teams.

The Tybee Island Experience

Tybee Island is the prized island jewel of Coastal Georgia, nestled just east of Savannah outside of all the hustle and bustle of city life. You will know you’ve arrived once you pass over the Lazaretto Creek Bridge and peer out over the Cockspur Lighthouse and the area marina. You will see the waves breaking along the shore and if you are lucky you can catch the dolphins following the shrimp boats in. You may also see ttybeebeachhe big cargo ships cruising along the coastline. The neck of the Savannah River meets the Atlantic Ocean on North Tybee. On your left coming in, check out the Tybee Oaks which houses some of the best little shops on the island. Then, head down to the lighthouse at the first red light, just take a left. You can climb all 178 stairs to the top for an amazing view of the North side of Tybee.
As you make your way further south along Highway 80, you will notice a colorful array of homes and shops. We are all about some southern vintage charm! Don’t forget to check out the Pier area. This is the heartbeat of the island and where everyone wants to be in the summer. There is the Tybee Island Marine Science Center if you are bringing children along. It has a good selection of the area wildlife in their touch tanks. If you are feeling adventurous, you can plan a beach ecology trip through the Marine Science Center. Tour guides will direct you along the beach and show you some sites that you might not see otherwise.
As one of Georgia’s coastal islands, we enjoy a great variety of wildlife and natural wonders…The beaches are clean, the water brisk…come down and experience the wonder of island living…we’d love for you to stay with us! We offer 1-7 bedroom condos and homes, oceanfront and ocean view…You can check them all out on our website or feel free to stop by and see us in person!

Seagulls…What not to do!

657I think seagulls are absolutely adorable…that is until about 12 o’clock when I am laying on the beach and hungry. If you have ever tried to eat ANYTHING on the beautiful beaches of Tybee Island, then you probably know exactly what I am talking about. If you have never been around these boisterous birds, think Finding Nemo when the birds are about to eat Marlin and Dory and their myriad of “mines.” Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine! (If you haven’t seen Finding Nemo, it is definitely a must see!) Continue reading “Seagulls…What not to do!”
