We here with family on a Sunday afternoon. Beach was busty but not crowded. Many other families but no blaring music, roaming groups of teens or other annoyances. Beach was very clean and gently sloping so nice to wade. Access from the street is good...More

We rented a house near mid- beach and walked a few blocks to the beach each day. It is a nice, quiet beach with a great sea breeze each afternoon! We lived using the boogie boards out there! Watch out for the sun- easy to...More

We had a very hard time finding the beach anywhere. We had to stop and ask 3 different times. Then we had to pay 4 quarters for 1/2 hour. I have been to much better beaches myself and was disappointed.

We had a 2 year old with us, so we parked on the beach and let her turn into a sugared cookie. Lots of space. Great place to walk. We even biked about 5 miles at low tide. Nice bathrooms available. Good piers and viewing...More

There are life guards and places to rent chairs and umbrellas. The beach is clean. Can watch cargo ships coming in. Public bathrooms and showers at the beach across from the light house.

The bathrooms at mid beach are nice to have, but they aren't very well maintained. We also didn't notice any lifeguards so I'm not sure what the parking fee is going toward. The beach itself is nice.

Technically this beach runs from the curve at 1st Street south to 14th Street. This beach did not seem to be crowded and I am told this is the beach of choice for the locals. There are public beach crossovers at every numbered street and...More

I love walking along this part of the beach when we are here. Quiet and relaxing. You can find some good shells if you go looking too.

We go to Savannah 2 times a year, this time we brought our bikes and decided to ride them at Tybee island, what a great relaxing ride on the island, we then stepped out onto the quiet beach, nice day, sunny and relaxing.

There is no overnight sleeping or camping, but I don't believe there is a time limit preventing you from being on the beach. While swimming at 2AM may be a very good idea, I didn't see any signs prohibiting it.

Yes, there is very little or possibly no free parking around Tybee Island for the beach during the day. I believe the parking meters run from 8AM to 8PM every day, so watching the sunrise or sunset may allow you free... More
