There are actually five beaches on Tybee, each one having a character all it's own. In terms of which is best
for any partictular day's outing, that will be down to you and what you have planned, but we provide a little more detail on each beach to hopefully help. We have also included a map of Tybee showing
the general locations of the beaches and some of the surrounding places to eat or stay. Hitting the beach, is by far the most popular thing for visitors to do on the
Island, so enjoy and have fun! Check out the beach rentals providers, if you want to rent beach equipment and surfboards, windsurf boards etc.
North Beach on the Island is among other things, a great place to enjoy some great bird watching, with special viewing areas set aside. It's also an ideal place to
watch the big ships as they make their way into Savannah. Dolphins are also on the viewing menu from North Beach, though of course cannot be guaranteed like the ships! Also for anyone interested in
shelling it makes a great visit.
Black River Beach
iThis beach is small but.. hey never judge a beach by it's size right?. You'll find this beach on the lower end of Tybee Island, just round the Island's
southern tip. It's a great place to take in views of Little Tybee and of course Black River Fishing Pier is another popular local area attraction.
This beach is wide and open. It's located around the northern tip of the Island and offer great views of ships coming in
and out of the Savannah River; and the dolphins too if they are in the mood of course! It's generally going to be quieter than some of the busier beaches on the Island, yet still offers
visitors reasons to stop by. It's known to be a popular beach for families, as the waves are likely to be smaller. You'll also find Savannah Beach Racquet club, with its various
facilities, in the vicinity.
Tybee Island's South Beach is considered the most popular beach. It's located near to the
business district and to many hotels, shops bars and restaurants. The beach is also open to surfers. Great if you want to be a bit more active at the beach.The Tybee Pier and Pavillion is
great for a drop of fishing or to cool off a little in the breezy air. It's also possible to get wedded here if that's your cup of tea!
Tybee's Mid Beach as you might expect is around midway between North Beach and South Beach. Mid Beach is very popular with local
people and is less crowded than the other main beaches. Restaurants and places to stay are more limited in the area around
Mid Beach. So if you are looking to avoid some of the crowds, Mid Beach could be a wise try out for sure.
