Tybee Island is a small, approximately 3.3 square mile island located about 30 minutes outside of Savannah that is popular for both day-trippers and vacationers alike.
During our visit to the area, we opted to spend a weekend in order to take in all the sights and really see what Tybee Island was all about.
But prior to booking, we had come across an interesting phenomenon with regards to accommodations on Tybee- the options are either primarily older-looking motels (admittedly with recently updated rooms) or apartment rentals! We decided to go for a private apartment rental and did not look back.
In this one, we wanted to discuss why we did that and also highlight some things to think about when booking a hotel on Tybee Island as the accommodation concerns are a bit unique here.
