It’s time to follow your impulse to head for the beach for last minute Tybee Island Getaways with Mermaid Cottages!
It’s Fall, but our cottage charm and coastal calm never goes out of season and any time of year is a great time to head for the beach. This weekend, we’re getting outside to enjoy the Tybee Island City Wide Yard Sale Hosted by Tybee Post Theater and Founding Partner Fish Art Gallery. More than two dozen homes and businesses will stage yard sales across the island with proceeds to go toward the restoration of the Theater into a community performing arts and movie venue. Proceeds from many of the sales benefit the non-profit community on Tybee, as well. Maps identifying all the sale locations are available at the Tybee Visitors Center, the Fish Art Gallery and the Tybee Post Theater. We’re also going to show our duck-a-tude at the Lucky Ducky Derby in Memorial Park.

For Tybee Island Pirate Fest, the Tybee Island Association of Rental Agents is sponsoring the Tybee Trolley. The shuttle will begin operating at 5 p.m. on October 10th and it will run until 12:30 a.m. Saturday, October 11th. Take advantage of this great service!
Be sure to add Tybee Beach Ecology Trips to your Fall Fun list when you visit. Pirates may be invading the island by this weekend, but a period of “spring tides” arrive first and that means the low tide level will be lower than average. Low tide is when Dr. Joe introduces you to some of our most reclusive residents. Make your beach trip more than just a trip to the beach. Make it a valuable experience while discovering and learning about the animals and habitats of Georgia’s beaches and barrier islands.
So, why is Tybee Beach Ecology so interesting?
- Overlap of cold-water and tropical species
- Additional species with seasonal changes
- Nearby rivers, estuaries, and marshes
- Nearby offshore reefs and hard bottoms
- Lots of sandy intertidal area
- Jetties and tide pools
Tybee Beach Ecology Trips are fun ways to actively discover and learn about the variety of beach animals found along our southeastern coastline. Travel along Continue reading
