I just love fiddler crabs. We even have a cottage named after them that sits on one of tybee’s tidal creeks. They live in the marsh mud and come out when it’s 80* or warmer. There are over million fiddler crabs in one square mile. These are some pictures we took on a summer boat trip with sundial charters and the terrific Capt Rene.

Do you have a passion for helping people or the community? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of others? There are many ways to experience voluntourism on Tybee Island.
Tybee Island Beach Sweep If you want to get down and dirty, just join the island locals for a Tybee Beach Sweep in their efforts to keep our beaches gorgeous. We meet before sunrise to get started and walk the beaches cleaning up any trash dropped on the beach. This aligns with our eco-friendly goals of protecting our wildlife and the natural settings of the dunes and sand. We have a great time and what’s better than seeing the beautiful sunrise on the beach? Our next International Coastal Cleanup is September 20th.
This home is especially unique by its ownership, Paula Deen. Yes, this cookin’ queen is one of a few celebrities in Savannah who has a vacation home on Tybee Island that you can stay in! Paula Deen ensures all her guests who come to stay in her vacation home receives a special welcome gift of Paula Deen’s goodies, a personalized Paula Deen Cookbook and guaranteed VIP Dining at her restaurant, Lady and Sons in downtown Savannah.
While Bob and his family were here visiting Tybee, they got the opportunity to attend one of Paula Deen’s tapings for her new network. They had a great time getting to speak with her and are ever so thankful for the experience to see her in action, live!
“Y’all Come Inn was spacious and had everything we needed. We loved being fairly close to the beach and in between North and South Beach. It was truly a relaxing week for us. We were looking forward to a great meal at Lady and Sons, but we were even more amazed at their wonderful staff. They take real good care of you and the peach cobbler with ice cream on top was to die for! My wife, sister in law, and daughter had a field day over the shopping at Seaside Sisters! We also loved eating at Coco’s Sunset Grille.”~Guest, Bob Petty
“The whole experience with Mermaid Cottages from start to finish was “Johnny on the spot” with info and everything else. The privacy and relaxation that comes with renting a cottage from Mermaid Cottages is completely worth it! We can’t wait to come back.”~Guest Bob Petty
