Explore Georgia: Tybee Island Tips No One Tells You About

Ever wonder how can you maximize your visit to Tybee Island? We have gathered the best insider tips so you can plan a dream trip to one of the most unique places you'll ever visit.

BEST PLACE TO LAY DOWN YOUR TOWEL
Park near the Tybee Beach Beach and Pavilion (Tybrisa St, Tybee Island, GA 31328) use the bridge in front of the Tybee Island Marine Center turn right and walk towards the rock formation close to the sand dunes. This portion of the beach has a smoother sand, lots of shallow areas that are perfect for little kids to bathe safely, is less crowded, and because it's close to the sand dunes you will see a large variety of seaside birds.

Food We Love To Eat: Mofongo at Versace's Dominican Restaurant

 
Traditional Dominican Mofongo


When you are raised in the Caribbean there are certain foods that you just can't live without. Mofongo and "patitas" pigs feet, are just two of my favorite guilty pleasures that I love to eat, but rarely can, since almost no one in Atlanta knows how to cook them the way they do it back home. Mofongo is basically green plantains that are fried, then mashed with garlic and crushed pork rinds. For me, mofongo is the equivalent of comfort food and is one of those things I like to eat when I'm feeling homesick. The mofongo at Versace's Dominican Restaurant in Lilburn, not only is absolutely delicious, but it taste as good or even better as the ones I used to eat back at the island.

Versace's Dominican Restaurant is a family style cafeteria/restaurant, with a big dinning room and Caribbean music playing all day on the background. The walls are decorated with art depicting several important colonial buildings around Dominican Republic and Puerto Plata. The restaurant offers an extensive menu of reasonably priced dishes and huge portions. Versace's Dominican Restaurant is a hidden gem that's worth the drive. One bite to their famous mofongo and you will be magically transported back to the Caribbean. I'm so glad I was able to discover this place. Something tells me I'll become a regular very soon. Versace's is one of those places where food is king and crisp, starchy, white tablecloths are useless. This is the place where you need to come when you want to indulge in real, authentic Caribbean food.  If you ever decide to come by, don't forget to order "flan" for dessert, it's smooth, silky and oh so creamy!!
