Sand, sea and salty breezes have a charm all their own, combined with a dash of history, fresh local cuisine and an array of outdoor adventures. Tybee Island is located 20 minutes from Historic Savannah. This barrier island boasts five miles of public beaches perfect for sunbathing, people-watching, surfing, and frolicking in the sand and surf of the Atlantic Ocean. The island's south-end pier and pavilion provide the perfect venue for a picturesque view or reeling in the day's catch. The Tybee Lighthouse is one of the nation's oldest lighthouses, and was built in 1736 with a spectacular view from the top. Our Marine Science Center features aquariums showcasing our native marine life. Our eight hotels, six Bed and Breakfast inns, and some 800 houses, cottages, and condos offer outstanding options for beachfront, beach view, and marsh view locations across the island. You'll find 25 restaurants (all casual), many featuring fresh, local seafood and warm, friendly Southern smiles.
