Tybee Island GA: An Unhurried, Quiet Getaway

Laid back, rich life on Tybee Island!

“Quiet enjoyment. Quiet comforts. Quiet spots.”

Those are a few of the first impressions from Lighthouse Inn bed and breakfast’s creative team.  Puttering about, three pros spent a 12-hour day in early November 2011 visiting Tybee Island and Lighthouse Inn.  Their day of “wholesome joy!” began before sunrise.

On the beach they met northeast travelers who had sought out the sunny Tybee Island getaway … taking full advantage of a chance to get out of an early snow.  One couple arrived at the inn, happily escaping their over-commercialized Florida.

Unspoiled, Fall beach relaxation!

Our creative team shares more of their first impressions.

  • Dawn to dusk, sun up to sun down, life is casual.
  • Forget the watch. High and low tides, sunrise and sunset take care of themselves … no staff or scheduling required.
  • No one cares that hair is mussed.  Smiles matter more on Tybee Island (once officially named “Savannah Beach”).
  • A Tybee photographer (H.J. Ruiz) advised: move back from the shoreline when a big freighter steams by along Tybee Roads. He and his camera equipment had been drenched once by a resulting wave.
  • You’ll fit right in wearing your favorite cap or an old-time straw hat.  The stereotypical beachwear look in Fall is retro-inspired, modest, casual attire.
  • It’s a rare little spot on Earth!  Bring a camera to capture Tybee Island’s quaint, unspoiled beauty and your new memories.
  • Bare feet, flip flops and boat shoes are obviously on-trend fashion here. There is no need to pack high heels.  ‘Hampton’s casual’ is as dressy as one sees, and that would be a rare, nightlife spotting.
  • Try The Breakfast Club … for lunch! “Three cheers” for “tasty” omelets with the freshest vegetables.

“Life gets better when we dial back the noise to the sounds of nature!” says marketing executive Sandy Traub. “In its early resort years Tybee Island was considered a medicinal holiday spot.  That generation worked hard, but they knew the great spots (and they planned time) to get away for uncomplicated relaxation.  With 100% public beaches, today Tybee remains one of America’s best kept secrets, prolonging its unspoiled island retreat reputation in so many ways!”

Susie and Stuart, the exemplars of simple pleasures, invite you to get away for a few refreshing days and nights — away from madness — at Lighthouse Inn on Tybee Island, Georgia.
