Tybee Island was a great getaway while staying in Savannah. The weather was great, the crowds were not too bad, and the water was cool! We had so much fun we went back twice!

Tybee Island alone is worth a day trip from Savannah. The beach offers beautiful views of the atlantic ocean and are moderately crowded. Watching the barge ships make their way to Savannah River is a relaxing sight worth seeing.

Family vacation with kids of all ages. Very nice beach clean not overly crowded. I like taking the family here because you don't have to spend as much money.

South Beach is the busiest of the Tybee Beaches. We arrived early and got parked without problem. It was seriously hot and we were glad to find a spot under the pier to keep in the shade. The beach is clean and safe. Most amenities are nearby but we did not find showers or changing facilities. The parking patrol are... More

Best part is the water is wet. Brown, dirty, crowded. If you don't mind sharing a dirt brown beach with 1,000 of your soon to be closest friends.. This beach is for you. Wasn't for me though.

Being from Tampa, Florida, we wanted to check out the beach and we were not disappointed. It was not the white sand that we are used to but it was clean, not overly crowded and beautiful. There is a fishing pier and a pier that looked to have food and I would suspect bathrooms. We did not go to the... 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

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 on duty.

Ran over to Tybee Island while in Savannah. Nice beach, but parking at the beach is both expensive and hard to find. Beach was very nice, not crowded, but also not alot of stuff to do other then lay out and get tanned and wade in the surf. Town seemed like typical vacation beach village. Missed the light house, closed... More
