Northside, South or in Middle?

Help! Can't decide which beach to stay on tybee island.

I know the north end is cheaper, but on the bay. How is the beach there? How is it different from the other beaches on Tybee? We would like to rent a condo on oceanfront, 2br maybe with a pool also? Any suggestions? Will be there 7/9-7/12.

The north end beaches are smaller and quieter. They are on the river so it is just a different feel, not bad, just different.

The biggest issue is that most of the bars, restaurants, shops etc are toward the south end. Not all of them mind you, there are places on the north end, just not as many, so people on the island for the day, tend to head to the south end. The beaches are busier, there are lots of people just wandering around near the pier and the intersection of 16th St and Butler Ave. there is really no place on the north end with that kind of crowds and activity.

Hope that helps.

Brian O's advice is excellent. I would stay near the S end. Go to AJ's Dockside Restaurant and dine outdoors. Enjoy your trip.

AJ's Dockside Restaurant @ 1315 Chatham Ave., Tybee Island, GA. 912 - 786 - 9533.

Both the above responses are great, and we always stay at the south end at Tybrisa Resort....2 bdrm...pool....balcony overlooking the ocean...sounds like it would take care of what you are talking about. www.trybrisa.com

Tybrisa looks nice. Concerned about looking out over the parking lot though.
