Thunderbolt The Coast

Escape to this waterfront village where you can dine on the fresh catch while watching boats navigate the Wilmington River. Take time to enjoy local attractions or just relax and soak up the coastal culture.

A small town five miles southeast of downtown Savannah, Thunderbolt is one of the gateways to Tybee Island. Thunderbolt runs along the western shore of Wilmington River, a tidal river that is part of the U.S. Intracoastal Waterway. The attractive waterfront is lined with seafood restaurants and shrimp boats. Nearby attractions include historic Bonaventure Cemetery and Wiley's Championship BBQ.
