TYBEE ISLAND, Georgia — Sunday, September 4, 2016, take in beach music of the Swingin’ Medallions, beginning at 7:00 p.m., and see beach fireworks going off around 9:15 p.m. near Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion.
We hope you’ll choose your Tybee Island lodging here, at Lighthouse Inn amid the quiet of north beach, in the shadow of the Tybee Lighthouse, and a part of historic Fort Screven.
REMINDER: Loggerhead sea turtles nest on Tybee Island each year from May through October. Only RED lights are not permitted on the beach. “Turtles often mistake lights on the beach for moonlight, which they use to navigate back to the water after nesting. A turtle can become disoriented and then exhausted looking for the ocean and end up on busy roads or in backyards. Lights are also a problem for hatchlings, which may head toward roads and homes rather than the water, making them more vulnerable to predators.” Source: GeorgiaWildlife.com
