Tybee Island, Georgia, often referred to as Savannah’s Beach, offers a place for all seasons with sandy beaches, great fishing, and rich history at every turn. Wide, clean beaches with warm, gentle Atlantic Ocean waves make Tybee Island the perfect escape to sand, sun, and seaside bliss.
One of Georgia’s barrier islands, Tybee Island has more than three miles of beautiful beaches, each with its own personality. North Beach is the largest and is the part of Tybee where you’ll find a wide range of historic attractions, local eateries, funky shops and, of course, sandy beaches. Or head to the southern tip of the island, South Beach, which is considered the downtown district. Here you’ll find the Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion. The central community of Mid Beach provides convenient access to all the activity of North Beach and South Beach while providing beachfront lodgings and delicious dining.
Often referred to as the island’s secret beach, Tybee’s Back River Beach is tucked away at the end of Highway 80, on the outskirts of a quiet neighborhood. This wide stretch of sand offers gentle rolling waves, dolphin sightings and amazing sunsets. Tybee’s Back River offers an uncrowded setting to sit back, relax, and enjoy the view.

Boat, kayak and personal watercraft rentals are available to get you there.
