We spent Thanksgiving Day here. It's a great clean beach and not overly crowded and plenty of waves & seashells for everyone.

Tybee offers very wide, powdery sand beaches that are great for walking. There is some shelling to be done. There is a pier but it was blocked off so not accessible. I get the impression it is a madhouse in the summer months with lots of partier types and drinking. Stop by one of the shops around 6th st to... More

If you love beaches and Piers, you will fall in love with South Beach..It is my opinion that South Beach is the main attraction in Tybee Island.

Tybee Island is overall beautiful. However, South Beach has its particularities starting with the cleanness of its beach sand and how well it is kept. I spent time walking on the sand with bare feet and I feel as I am a different person since then: joint pain free!!!

We were there for the Art Students Display. The beach was clean and well kept, even with all the crowds. The unbrella and lounge chair renters were very accomadating. Parking was good and close.

Very reasonable parking fee, $2 an hour. We arrived only 7 days after Mathew hit and were impressed with how much work everyone had already done to tidy up. It's an attractive, low key area perfect for a day's outing from Savannah. The nearly empty beach was lovely to walk along, wading ankle deep in the sea, watching the gulls... More

With the birth of our first grandson in July 2016, my wife agreed to serve as the nanny for the first 7 months. I agreed to come from Chicago to stay on Tybee Island starting in September. I have found Tybee and South Beach to be an outstanding destination for everyone. The beach is clean, large, and offers opportunities for... More

This was a very clean brown sand beach. Visited it in October so it was far from being busy. Prefer the white sand beaches of Florida though.

We spent 3 days at Tybee last week in September 2016.It was very nice each day, very clean beach and were were able to walk on the entire pier(all free of charge unlike some of the coastal piers!) The Lighthouse was a treat to see. Not very crowded and hotel room rates were below $100.00 (we stayed at the Dunes&Inn... More
