Lights out-Save the sea turtles

 

 

Not only is it unkind to disturb the nests along the South Carolina coast it is also illegal.  Loggerhead turtles are considered to be an endangered species. Here are some simple ways that you can help assist with their survival and the new baby turtles while enjoying a beach vacation.

  • Comply with the “lights out” policy if you are staying in an ocean front building
  • Remove your beach chairs and umbrellas from the beach in the evening
  • Do not leave any trash or plastic on the beach
  • Return any sandcastles or holes to the original surface when leaving the beach
  • Never disturb a nest, a nesting turtle or a hatchling

Doing these things will help the turtles from getting disoriented, tangled, trapped or unable to reach the nest.

If you are a new visitor to the beach, after taking a short walk you will likely find it preposterous,  that anyone would want to disrupt the lives of wildlife.

This cozy oceanside community located just east of Savannah Georgia offers something for all ages.  With a wide variety of lodging options, including hotels, timeshare resorts, privately owned beach cottages, oceanview homes, creekside properties and campgrounds. The Coastal colors throughout the community, the salt air and the light surf all says it’s time to relax.

 

The scenic marsh drive on US highway 80 from Savannah to the island offers a peak of the wildlife that makes the marsh and rivers their home. Upon entering the island you will find a great variety of services available so don’t worry if you forgot something at home.

Within minutes you will sense the casual charm and the southern hospitality of this coastal Georgia barrier island.

During your stay, besides the lovely 5 miles of Public beach access, there is so much to do.

Here are a few tips:

The Lighthouse and Light Station

Fort Screven and the Tybee Island Museum

 

Tybee Island Pier & Pavillion-there is no entry fee, but a fishing license is required to fish

Spend a day touring Savannah

 

Meanwhile, back at the beach

And in the great spirit of America, yes we have Flamingo’s, one of the most loved lawn ornaments!  https://easyrealestate.blog/2018/05/26/flamingo-osis-in-america/

My overall review for Tybee Island as a vacation destination would be a YES!

The weather year round is mild, summers are hot and muggy, but you’ll have a beach breeze.

Have a great time….eat lots of blue crabs, shrimp and grits
