Its open dance floor amid a coastal setting made it a legendary stop on the Big Band tour and for five decades of entertainers. Fire destroyed it in 1967. Led by efforts of the people of Tybee Island Chatham County built the Tybrisa Pavilion II and dedicated it on the 9th of August 1996.

    Hello…Am I reading this correctly…… the pier/pavillion on Tybee can be rented for a wedding???
    I thought it was a public place, like a park, and couldn’t be rented…..but it can???
    I am looking for a beach venue for my daughter’s wedding next year.
    We love that area and have visited Tybee many times.
    Could you send info?
    Thank you very much,
    Canton, Georgia

    I have seen different people on the pier dancing, singing, hula hooping, or just sitting at a table and playing the guitar, do these people. Have to have permits to do this ? Or is it ok if nothing is going on to just sit and sing,
