Its a long hike up to the top, but the best view on Tybee! The Lighthouse charges admission, but is reasonable. On a hot day go early to avoid the heat. Windy days might also be a challenge.

while it can be really hot, the ocean breeze actually made a family stop at this historic lighthouse a great visit. The price to enter is reasonable, and onlyso many can go up at once. It is actually very spacious inside, and the views are spectacular.

The view from the top of Tybee Station Light is amazing and not to be missed. I also really enjoyed seeing the home and the personal photos of some of the lighthouse keepers.

The lighthouse is a great experience, but it is very tiring. There's 170 stairs to the top, and once you get up there the view is breathtaking! I definitely recommend coming here!

Very interesting visit to the lighthouse. Lots of history in the light house itself. There are 170 steps to the top for a spectacular view of the island and savahnnah area. Pretty hot in july but ac in the museum areas. Not very expensive and well worth the time

We arrived at the lighthouse and the gate for free parking was closed. We went across the road where they have pay-2-park... get use to that! We pulled in a spot and walked to the machine only to find out that it takes change, no plastic, no paper money. So I looked around and finally found a bill changer and... More

Beautiful area and the lighthouse is great for pictures. Children really enjoyed it. My husband or myself did not go to the top but it is a nice area to visit.

Although we didn't take a tour, the evening sunset was beautiful as it provided a gorgeous backdrop to the property. If you're in the area, you should swing by to see the lighthouse.
