Tybee Island Beaches

Tybee Island is home to Savannah’s beaches. All of the Tybee beaches have something different to offer. Take a quiet, peaceful stroll along North Beach or join others on our festive South Beach.

Tybee North Beach:

If you’re looking for the perfect location for shelling, seeing dolphins, and viewing the large container ships as they travel to and from the Port of Savannah, North Beach is the place for you.  Located at the mouth of the Savannah River, surrounding Fort Screven, you can also see the Tybee Museum and Light Station, as well as plenty of birds at the popular Bird Viewing Area.

Tybee South Beach:

The most popular section of Tybee’s Beach is South Beach. South beach encompasses 14th St. south to 18th St., and is where you’ll find the area’s surfers and the Tybee Pier & Pavilion.  South Beach is located next to Tybee’s main business district, and is within a block or two of most of the island’s hotels and motels, as well as many restaurants, bars, and places to shop.  Large public oceanfront parking lots are available at 14th St. and Tybrisa St.

The mid island beaches are located from 1st St. south to 14th St., and are much less crowded than South Beach.  This section of the beach offers public beach crossovers and a quiet peacefulness with the dunes.
