Tybee Island is a barrier island located just 18 miles south of Savannah, making the "Hostess City of the South" an easy day trip.
The beaches are the big draw on Tybee Island. They've been popular with tourists since the 1800s and continue strong to this day. Sometimes called "Savannah's Beach," you'll find a wide, clean beach lapped by warm, gentle waves. The sand is great for making sandcastles, feels fantastic to walk on and, at low tide, is firm enough to bike on. There are three miles of uninterrupted public beach, and nearby salt marshes are teeming a diverse combination of birds and wildlife unique to Southeastern Georgia. You'll also find fishing piers and off shore and deep sea boat charters.
South Beach is next to Tybee Island's business district and near many restaurants, bars and shops. Because of this, South Beach also gets the most crowds. Mid Beach is a favorite local hangout, but is a bit further away from places to eat and shop. North Beach, located at the mouth of the Savannah River, is sheltered and is a great location for shelling, viewing dolphins, and watching ships travel in and out of the port of Savannah (on of the nation's busiest ports). Savannah River Beach is even more isolated and is great for seeing dolphins.
Once you’re done at the beach, head out to one of Tybee Island's great restaurants. There are over 25 to choose from, and plenty of fresh catch seafood to go around. Make sure you try fresh caught wild Georgia shrimp before you leave. Many restaurants and bars have live music and, best of all perhaps, you can take to your cocktail to the beach for a midnight walk in the moonlight.
There's also great shopping on Tybee Island. Talented local artists own unique shops and galleries where you can buy one of a kind gifts and home decor items.
No matter what your pleasure, you're sure to find it on Tybee Island.
