Coastal Ga. Weekend: Tips And Tricks For The Beach

Visit Tybee Director Sara Lane has tips for beating the crowds, watching the sunset and having a blast at Georgia’s beaches.

-To avoid crowds and traffic, it’s best to head to Tybee early in the day. The roads and beaches fill up more as the day wears on.

-Parking is rarely easy on Tybee, but locals take advantage of the larger parking lot at north beach, near the lighthouse.

-If you’re not the swimming type, paddleboarding is a great way to enjoy the island. You can take a tour or rent a board and explore on your own.

-Anglers can cast their lines off the Tybee pier to catch some fresh fish.

-Once schools start up in August, the crowds thin out and you might have an easier time finding a hotel room or rental cottage. The Visit Tybee where-to-stay page can help you find a room.

-The Tybee Lighthouse offers a great vantage point to see the sunset with their sunset tours twice a month. The first is this Friday, July 11.
