The beach was clean and seemed to we'll maintained. The water is warm and the waves are perfect for boarding. You can enjoy the waves without getting beat up all day. Over the weekend the beach was crowded, but not too crowded. We've had a good family time on the beaches of Tybee.

The beach area was beautiful, fun and very relaxing. There was a good mix of couples and families with kids.

I'd rate this beach as average. The crowds were manageable, the beach was clean, and the waves were really much bigger than we are used to in Galveston. Even the adults had fun diving into them and body surfing. The only complaint I have is that finding parking was a bit of a hassle and costs $2 an hour.

The beach was clean, kids loved it. The only complaint is that everyone seemed to be a smoker, the smell ruined the scenery.

We drove from Savannah to Tybee Island for the day. We climbed the lighthouse which is very near the beach. We walked to the beach and spent the day relaxing and playing in the ocean. There is a paid parking lot, be sure to turn the ticket so that it can be read by the parking attendant. In our excitement,... More

Not a bad place to visit, I'd bring my family back and the fireworks are outstanding. However, if you are looking for a touristy destination like Myrtle Beach or Destin, FL Tybee Island is not for you.

Our kids had a wonderful time. Strip was fun to walk around and the pier was...interesting. Last day on the beach... More

If you like taking your family to a beach that's just as pretty as any beach on the east coast, and with the same type of sand, the same water and the same beach view go here. It's beautiful! There are no "put on" people here who pretend to be something they're not! There are lots of families having a... More

The beach was not crowded and there were plenty of places to put your stuff. However, the beach tended to be littered with trash. People would just throw cups, food wrappers, etc....on the ground and no one picked the stuff up.
