Sand, sea and salty breezes have a charm all their own, but when combined with a dash of history, fresh local cuisine and an array of outdoor adventures there's a guaranteed draw to Tybee Island. Tybee Island is located 20 minutes from Historic Savannah, Georgia's First City. This barrier island boasts 5 miles of public  beaches backed by sea oat-covered sand dunes that are perfect for sunbathing, people-watching and frolic king in the sand and surf of the Atlantic Ocean. Tybee Island meant "salt" to Native Americans who once inhabited the island, but today the name brings to mind a splendid setting to be enjoyed by the whole family. The island's south-end pier and pavilion provide the perfect venue for strolling above the waves for a picturesque view or reeling in the day's catch from the sea. During spring and summer, visitors can even enjoy live music and special events on the pier. Tybee Island is the history buff's dream!
