Warm water/Clean but not for us!

Its an OK beach. The sand isn't the sugary soft white. The water was warm. Nice peir. Swings by the dunes along beach. Not my favorite beach...but a good place. Not a busy island so if you want to get away from overly crowded beaches this is a good spot.

We drove to Tybee Island to check out what the fuss was all about. We thought it was very nice but lacking public amenities. We had a bit of trouble finding parking, had to circle several times to find a closest one to the beach. When we got there we didn't know if there were public restrooms for changing so... More

After reading Mary Kay Andrews's novels I was expecting something quite different. We went on Friday evening and it was wall-to-wall people. That was okay and I was expecting that. After all, it is the beach in summer! But I was expecting quaint shops and restaurants. But the beach was good and I enjoyed the visit. Next time I will... More

Stopped by on a Saturday evening, around 5pm with my partner as we were staying in Savannah for the weekend. We parked near 6th street, paid for parking (25c per 10 mins) and then wandered across to the beach. Couldn't believe how warm the water was! Although be wary of all the shells, makes it a bit uncomfortable walking barefoot... More

the water was warm! The waves were spectacular! The beach was clean! My only complaint that hotel guests still had to pay for lounge chairs and umbrellas. A bit expensive in my eyes

Really enjoyed Tybee Island Beach, the water though not blue is warm and relaxing. Rented an umbrella and two chairs for $25.00 and it was totally worth it!

Tybee Island is a small, very pedestrian friendly, family oriented island with beach access on the Atlantic ocean side. There are tons of things to do, both on Tybee and in nearby Savannah. The beach itself is very clean and not overcrowded. The water was very refreshing during our June and July visits. The only reason I would not give... More

We were on our way home from Daytona Beach and decided to take one last day on the beach. We saw this was on our way home, so we decided to stop. Daytona is a very nice beach and we figured this would be about the same level. Tybee is a piece of junk! The beaches had wood all over... More

Living in Florida, we tend to be snobby about beaches, but were pleasantly surprised by Tybee Island beach. We spent a day on the North End, where the beach is quite wide, and found it to be clean, uncrowded, and quiet. We rented an umbrella and two beach chairs from a kiosk on the beach for only $20!! There was... More
