Situated just off the coast of Georgia, Tybee Island is the perfect place to relax and be worry-free on vacation. It is best known for its quirky charm, sandy beaches, and unhurried lifestyle, but it is also a popular destination for families with pets. With a variety of pet-friendly vacation rentals to choose from on FlipKey.com, it is easy to find a place to stay that will accommodate your entire group - cats, dogs, and other furry companions included.
The shores of Tybee Island are beautiful and invite visitors for a day of fun in the sun. Whether you choose to frolic in the ocean or build sand castles on the beach, there’s something for every beachgoer to enjoy at Tybee Island Beach or North Beach. Although dogs aren’t allowed on the beaches of Tybee Island, you can feel comfortable leaving your pets at your vacation rental for a few hours. Many vacation homes in Tybee Island have fenced in backyards so your dog can roam around in the fresh air, and pet-proof apartment rentals provide all the comforts of home for your pets while you’re out on the town. If you don’t want to part with your pup to go to the beach, head to Little Tybee Island, which allows dogs on its beaches.
You’ll want to spend as much time as possible out on the water during a trip to Tybee Island. Rent a kayak and paddle through the surrounding waters, or choose a pontoon boat rental so there’s space for your dog to join, too. If you’d rather leave the boating to the professionals, book a dolphin tour with Captain Mike’s Dolphin Tours. Your pets can come with you on these tours, and you’ll both get to see dolphins jumping in the distance. If you’re lucky, you might even see some up-close-and-personal alongside the boat.
Back on land, Fort Pulaski is dog-friendly and has a number of nature trails that both you and your pets can enjoy. Walk a loop around the grounds to discover a part of the area’s history while taking in scenic water views. There are also two dog parks at the intersection of Van Horne and Fort Streets that you can check out with your pets. Both offer lots of room for your pets to run around, and you just might make some new friends here.
Whether you’re visiting for a weekend getaway or enjoying an extended stay, there are many pet-friendly vacation rentals in Tybee Island to choose from. With amenities like full-size kitchens and air conditioning and the extra space that comes with a rental, everyone in your family will be happy on vacation in Tybee Island.
