We went on a weekday in November, on a beautiful sunny day in the low 70's. Plenty of folks were fishing on the pier (pier is free!) and a few people were walking the beach, flying kites. There were even a few brave souls getting into the water, mostly with wetsuits, surfboards, kayaks. We just watched from our beach chairs.... More

My daughter loved it, it was not crowded when we went but it was a little breezy so I was cold. This was my first trip to a beach and I plan to go again

Four of us visited on a Thursday afternoon in June on a hot summer day. If you haven't been to a beach in awhile like me, remember the sand can be very hot and so can the sun. So, use lots of sunscreen, reapply it, and use the correct SPF. We had tons of fun playing in the ocean, laying... More

The beach was fairly good. Large amount of parking. Lifeguards on duty. Free to go on pier, which is very unusual.

The water looks green, but it's not dirty. The sand is like sugar and the water is warm (not like the freezing pacific). Wear sunscreen! It is beautiful.

Where do I start? The parking lots are disgusting. Dirty diapers, trash and clothes all over the grounds. The public restrooms by the pier are so dirty and smell of urine. I literally wanted to puke. The beach is filled with cigarette butts , bottle caps and trash everywhere. In the short time we were there I had seen 3... More

The south end beach is great and clean specially at low tide. And in comparison to the 2 other beachs at Tybee, it is very calm and peacefull. Wonderfull place to have a walk and look for marine life.

We spent a few hours on the beach. It was nice. Was crowded but fun. We sat close to the pier and were close to the restrooms and anything we would need! Besides having to pay $2/ hour for parking, it was a great and cheap trip to the beach!

My family and I had a blast! The only cost was to pay for parking. The bathroom we changed in smelled awful and I made sure I touched none of the surfaces! But after that was over, we walked over the hill and were on the beach. The beach was clean, there was a small crowd, but plenty of room... More
