For many years in the 17th and 18th Centuries, the islands of Coastal Georgia served as hideouts for bands of notorious pirates and outlaws. French, Spanish, and English ships filled with gold, silver, and other treasures were ripe targets for enterprising pirates. Legends say that some of this stolen treasure may still lie buried beneath the sands of these islands. The pirate flag is a reminder of one of the most chaotic periods in Tybee history.
