I was visiting Savannah, decided to have dinner on Tybee Island. It was a quick drive @5pm, spent time on the beach and shopped a bit. Very relaxing atmosphere, but there was a charge for parking and if you on,y have a credit card, there's a minimum $4 charge. Also, It was not clear to me if the parking slip was good for all parking lots on Tybee or just the place where the initial slip was purchased.

We had the best of both - History and Beach. Some of our group rented a house and others brought their RVs and all stayed onTybee.

Had a great time here. Parking will be your toughest fight. Even if beach crowed there is sooo much beach. You will find a spot. We had a ton of fun here. I thought the water was sort of dirty but maybe we hit a bad day. I would definitely go back.

I love this beach because it's at the end of the island and not crowded like it is over by the pier. Sadly it has very little parking and no services there but the sand is great and it has a beautiful view of Little Tybee Island and the Back River.

Enough already. I'm a local. Don't you know we like our quirky little island kept a secret. Driving onto the island is like stepping back in time. A bit of kitsch, a bit of sea air, and a whole lot of chillin. Ain't nothing fancy about Tybee. Just good folks, good seafood, and a good time. I'm counting the days for fall when the crowds of bronzed bodies thins out. If you like cookie-cutter beachside resorts, Tybee ain't for you. If you like one-of-a-kind places, you'll fall in love with Tybee and its come-one, come-all vive. No Hilton Head mansions here, just a charming pastel flip-flop cottage culture. Shoot. Did I make it sound to good to be true? Well in my book it is, but to each their own. Shhh...I mean it, don't tell anyone about Tybee.
