Clean, beautiful soft sand, and the waves weren’t rough, but we all know that can change. People of all ages were laying out, taking walks, building castles, etc.. Everyone is so polite, and seemed to be respectful of the beaches. Very easy access!!

A very quiet beach with lots of room for everyone. There is also a snack bar that serves ice cold drinks and lunch items.

Right near the base of the lighthouse is pay parking, showers, bathrooms, snacks, short walk to the surf, and all the shipping traffic a 12-yr-old could want to watch!

We stayed at Lighthouse Point, and we spent a lot of time on North Beach. I just LOVED the seclusion, and the beach is huge. It is calmer than the south end, but it is totally worth it. We had dolphins swimming all around us,...More

The north end of the island is quiet and slower paced than the south end. There are a few restaurants and shops to visit. The beach is nice and quiet also... and not crowded... but you are not facing the ocean... just the Savannah river.
