Tybee Island: What, When & Wear In May

tybee island: what, when & wear in mayTybee Island: What, When & Wear in May is full of great tips to make your Sun Days the best fun days during your visit!  The Mermaid Cottages mermaids and our cottage management teams have been working with our cottage owners to update, redo, fluff and stuff our happy homes by the sea with everything you’ll need for your girls getaways, mancations, vacations, weddings and babymooners‘ visits.  With mild temperatures, clean beaches, arts, entertainment and fresh seafood that’ll have y’all saying, “Goodness Gracious!”, here are some of our favorite things to see, do and snap up while you’re here.

Drip Dry and Water-proof

Cast off those overcoats, scarves and sweaters.  Spring has sprung and you’ll want to be able to hit the beach at a moments notice.  May is also when the locals kick off our high season with an all-out, but very friendly water war known as Beach Bum Parade.  You and your wardrobe may be all wet, but the laughs and the smiles will ensure you’re cute and giggly.  Keep it beachy and breezy with our new Mermaid Cottages shirts, tees and caps at Seaside Sisters.

Be A Part of the Artsy Crowd

Whether you sing it, act it, sculpt it, paint it or cover it in sand, it’s still art.  Get tickets to the best live shows in town at Tybee Post Theater and Tybee Arts Association.  Then, explore intimate and cozy cottages and splendid beach abodes with Tybee Island Tour of Homes and get that swing with Jazz at the Beach!

Tuck, Munch and Alex are a trio of inseparable friends whose lives are about to change. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys begin receiving a strange series of signals on their phones. Convinced something bigger is going on, they team up with another school friend, Emma, and set out to look for the source of their phone signals. What they discover is something beyond their wildest imaginations: a small alien who has become stranded on Earth. In need of their help, the four friends come together to protect the alien and help him find his way home. This journey, full of wonder and adventure, is their story, and their secret.
