Planning a spring break to Tybee Island? There’s plenty to do while you’re vacationing and enjoying the beach as the temperatures warm. In fact, we’ll give you a rundown of some of our favorite family-friendly spring break activities on Tybee Island.
First, you came for the beach…so kick back and enjoy it. After all, Tybee Island is consistently ranked among the top beaches in the country. Put on some sunscreen, grab the sunglasses and sink your toes in the sand, because there’s nothing quite as relaxing as doing nothing while staring at the ocean. You might even want to take a dip. You’ll definitely want to build a sandcastle!
Second, get close to nature on a dolphin tour. Sure, it’s exciting to see dolphins from the beach, but it’s even more exhilarating to see them up close aboard one of the excursions offered on Tybee Island. Hit the water with Captain Derek’s Tybee Dolphin Adventure or check out Captain Mike’s Dolphin Tours. It’s not unusual to see dolphins play in the wake. Nothing lights up the face of a kid (of any age) like seeing those fins cut across the water’s surface.
You can also get out on the water at a slow pace with a paddle along one of our waterways. Rent a kayak or paddle board and discover fun ways to see Tybee Island during spring break. If you don’t want to explore on your own, no worries. Outfitters also offer guided tours. Feeling really adventurous? Take a surfing lesson. You’re on an island, so you should get out on the water and get wet!
Fourth, get a taste of the island at one of our 30-plus casual Tybee Island restaurants. Throw a T-shirt on over your swimsuit and slip into the flip flops. It’s a laid-back atmosphere with delicious dishes, friendly service, and beautiful views. Most of our restaurants are kid-friendly, so bring the family and enjoy coastal dining at its best.
Last, but not least, enjoy family time in your spring break Tybee Island vacation rental. Memories are made of those moments grilling hamburgers, playing Go Fish (or your favorite card game) and sleeping with an open window to feel the ocean breeze. Really, is there anything better than waking up at the beach?
