“Nice Beach but crowded”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We stopped at Tybee beach on our way from Florida to Savannah. It was afternoon when we got there and parking was difficult to find. The beach is nice and clean. Calm waters. The beach itself is not wide and it was a crowded July weekday so it was tight. Nice view of Hilton Head in the distance. Only a 45 min ride from Savannah.

“Great beach to walk.”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

I love the beach on Tybee Island.

The sand and water are not as pretty as the Florida panhandle and there are no high rises or fancy condos.

BUT, it is also not loaded with chain restaurants and sterile atmosphere.

It is a great beach to take long walks.

To address some of the negative comments that I find ridiculous.
1. Yes there are sometimes jellyfish in the ocean. Imagine that.
2. "Cargo ships mar the scenery." I actually laughed out loud at this. Savannah is a working port, and real ships headed for all parts of the world are heading out. It's spectacular to watch them head out to sea.

Some legit complaints
1. Not enough parking and too expensive. It is indeed ridiculous.
2. Amenities are lacking-restrooms, showers etc.
3. I too wish there was some part or parts of the beach that were dog inclusive. But I also understand that people absolutely cannot be trusted to clean up after their dogs.

“Happy Feet!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Great beach for walking and exploring the edge of the dunes. Not too many shells to be found, but the quiet of the beach more than made up for it!

“Cooling off at The Beach”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

This beach was very clean,and very relaxing.It was not that crowded so you could really enjoy the view. I happened to spot a rocking bench,and just claimed the spot for awhile,lol! If you get a chance to visit this beach you won't be sorry. Just watch out for the jelly fish!

“What a let down”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

I have wanted to see Tybee Island for years after reading and hearing people talk about it. What a let down. Small, very expensive. Parking costs a fortune. God help you if you have to use a restroom. You will walk yourself to death. Go north my friends to the Outer Banks if you want to see real beach. It ain't here.
