Mermaids Make Halloween A Special Treat!

It’s going to be another fun filled celebration on Tybee Island when the Mermaids make Halloween a special treat!  You can be right in the middle of all the fun with a stay at Madelyn’s on the Marsh circa 1940.

Halloween at Crabby Pirate

Each year, the Mermaids help turn Lewis Avenue into a spook-tacular street for Trick or Treat delights.  Here are some photos from Lewis Avenue last year.  The Mermaids will be celebrating and giving out candy this year from Crabby Pirate Cottage circa 1940.  We’ll even be giving out Beach Bum Biscuits for the ghoulishly decked out pets that come Trick or Treating, too! …

Lights out for sea turtles!

Don’t forget. Our 20 sea turtle nests are starting to reach day 60 in their hatching process. Lights out (or shades drawn) whatever we can do to help reduce the sky glow for Tybee and keep lights from shining on the beach. Our increasing number of nests is a direct result of Tybee helping keep our beaches dark during sea turtle season!

Where Tybee shrimp come from

We love our wild Georgia shrimp. Tybee has her own fleet of shrimping boats. They are docked at the entrance to Tybee where the lazeretto bridge welcomes you on to the island. Our shrimpers are out every day bringing those fresh shrimp to the docks. I think the boats are a work of Art unto themselves.
