Tybee Island is just a short drive from Savannah. Very clean beach, and not too crowded. LONG pier. Public parking lot, but you do have to pay to park. Chair and umbrella rentals if you don't bring your own. Great place for the kids, too.

Nothing fancy about this beach, but we like it just fine (and we're used to vacationing in Maui and St. Marteen). Sand not white, but super soft, don't even need a towel since it's so soft. Beach very clean (yes sticks and seaweed, but its...More

South beach is removed from the main beach a bit and most of the beach goers go to the central or North beach. Granted that Tybee beach is not that large but I have not seen a lot of Spring break folks there at that time. IF... More
