Where do I start? The parking lots are disgusting. Dirty diapers, trash and clothes all over the grounds. The public restrooms by the pier are so dirty and smell of urine. I literally wanted to puke. The beach is filled with cigarette butts , bottle caps and trash everywhere. In the short time we were there I had seen 3 people cut and bleeding from whatever they stepped on. The pier was filthy as well. The service from the vendors in the pier was horrendous. Also the atmosphere I was picking up in the pavilion was that of a crack house . It was the feeling as if I wanted to hang out and get high it was the perfect place. I was so disappointed. No hotels on the beach so much wasted potential. I myself will never visit this beach again unless they do some serious renovations. If it were not for the folks at fannies and the great food and service there. Our trip would've been a complete waste of time.

The south end beach is great and clean specially at low tide.
And in comparison to the 2 other beachs at Tybee, it is very calm and peacefull. Wonderfull place to have a walk and look for marine life.

We spent a few hours on the beach. It was nice. Was crowded but fun. We sat close to the pier and were close to the restrooms and anything we would need! Besides having to pay $2/ hour for parking, it was a great and cheap trip to the beach!

My family and I had a blast! The only cost was to pay for parking. The bathroom we changed in smelled awful and I made sure I touched none of the surfaces! But after that was over, we walked over the hill and were on the beach. The beach was clean, there was a small crowd, but plenty of room to enjoy yourself. Some of my family walked to the pavilion and got hot dogs. I didn't get a chance to go, because I was too busy splashing in the water and building sand castles! Overall it was a great experience!
