Nice beach with lifeguards.

Nice beach with close parking. You have to pay to park, but it is worth it. There were places renting chairs if you didn't have some with you. Glad to see their were lifeguards... read more

Seemingly a throwback to old beach front boardwalk shops, pier, souvenirs, hotdogs, ice cream and more. This is the place to go if you like a lot of activity while/before/after hanging at the beach. More activity and noise that the North Beach at the other end of the island

Missed the light house, closed... More

I have been to this beach on a number of occasions and enjoyed the experience of relaxing in the sun and swimming. In the summer, the beach temperatures are a bit too hot and muggy for me, but Savannah in late Summer and Fall is definitely a good bet. Tybee Island is a bit off the main track of Savannah,...

This beach was super crowded and filled with rental chairs/umbrellas. Pier was pretty short but did have a nice large covered pavillion in the middle with food stands. The service was horrible at the food stands but they were available. Pay parking lot. Do yourself a favor and go to North Beach far less crowded has clean bathrooms, showers and... More

Tybee Island has alot to offer whether you go to its south or north beaches. South beach area connects to the back river. Kayaking, paddleboarding and canoeing are just a few of the water activities that can be done there due to the calmer waters.

Kids loved this beach. Easy to park at, very short walk to the beach. Nice waves coming in from small to not so small. Kids loved jumping in and out of the waves.

Good outing for families. A few restaurants, shops, museums, etc. Watch out for the high tides that may cover Hwy 80
