With so many fun activities and unique sights, you’ll never want to leave, which is why we have the Fall 4 Extending Special and Fall Vacay Special to help make your autumn stay even better!
Grab a Rod & Reel!
With the fall season approaching, there are some of the best fishing opportunities both inshore and offshore right now! The calmer waters off the beach and generally warmer water year-round mean there is great fishing to be had. Head to one of Tybee’s several public fishing piers for your adventure! Cast your line from the Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion, Back River Fishing Pier, and Lazaretto Boat Ramp and Fishing Pier. Each of these locations offer chances to catch some inshore marine life, like red drum, black drum, mackerels, flounders, trout, and more!

An Adventure to Little Tybee
Little Tybee is located to the south, just across Tybee’s Back River. Despite being able to see it from Back River Beach, guests are often unaware of it and rarely take the trek. Hop on a boat, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard to make the voyage to the untouched retreat! Check out North Island Surf and Kayak for your kayak and paddleboard rental needs. You can launch right from their dock on the Lazaretto Creek and head to the uninhabited island. They even offer guided tours and can help with camping on the island! Kayaking is the ideal way to spot all of the wildlife along the marshes, including dolphins, sea otters, osprey, and a variety of wading and migratory birds.
Enjoy a Fresh Catch Dinner
You can get great seafood anywhere on Tybee Island; however few places let you bring your very own fresh catch! After a great fishing expedition, bring your bounty to Bubba Gumbos or Sting Rays Seafood! They’ll cook up your catch, so you can reap the rewards of the day’s work.
