Tybee Island Sea Turtle Nesting Season

Tybee Island sea turtle nesting season has begun and Mermaid Cottages invites you to experience the magic. Every May through October some of the seas most spectacular nesting females make their way back to our little barrier island to make their nests and to lay their eggs. Our Mermaids are proud and honored to be among the many volunteers who search for sea turtle nests to help get them counted and to make sure they are protected. It’s our pleasure to help keep them safe until the eggs hatch and the new hatchlings make it back into the sea.
