Birdwatching

Tybee Island Birdwatchers can take advantage of the many purpose made viewing areas. In terms of a being a good location for birdwatching Tybee checks many boxes. Not least the fact that Tybee Island sits on the Colonial Coastal Birding Trail and sees thousands of migrating birds each year. Tybee also offers safe winter shelter for certain endangered species of shorebirds. Some of the best locations is at Tybee Light station on North Beach, Fort Pulaski and Little Tybee (off the lower end of the main island). 
 

​​Notwithstanding the above of course,  in clear first place of things to do is visit the beach. This of course should come as no suprise bearing in mind the Island itself is widely known for being the Savannah Beach!
