Get away in summer to Tybee Island Beach!

Ah, the beach! It’s part of a summer vacation, and Savannah is lucky that Tybee Island’s beach is nearby. Your summer travel plans may have been built around the history, culture and attractions of Savannah – but who wouldn’t want to dip their toes in the Atlantic while they’re here?

Fortunately, you can have the best of both worlds. Hop into your car after your gourmet breakfast at the Ballastone and set out for the beach – it’s only minutes away. Tybee’s beaches haven’t been fenced in by high-rises or run-away development.  Stroll on the pier, which was built as part of Georgia’s Olympic legacy (Savannah hosted the yachting events when the Olympics were in Atlanta in 1996.) Wade in the surf and watch shrimp boats and dolphin, all close in to the shore. Read under a beach umbrella or people-watch Tybee’s vibrant crowds. In short, have a beachy good time.

We’ll even help! The Ballastone will set you up with beach chairs and beach towels – those bulky necessities that are so hard to travel long-distance with. ** With a minimum two-day stay, Ballastone Inn will toss in a simple picnic and send you on your way.

Here’s the best part: after your day at the beach is over with, you return to comfort and luxury that nothing on the beach can rival. Wash the salt water out of your hair in your room’s elegant bath. Maybe a short nap in the cool comfort of an antique-laden room. Because soon, you’ll be downstairs for a crisp, chilled white wine and a tempting nibble before your night out on the town in Savannah.

This is the right way for adults to enjoy the beach!
