Tybee Island is the perfect balance of a relaxing beach life community and city amenities, only a short distance away from Savannah, GA. The island, known simply as “Tybee” by locals, offers a variety of things for every person.
There are plenty of places to go on Tybee, whether wanting to see historic sites, grab a bite to eat, or enjoy the water. This includes:
- Historic sites: Fort Pulaski, Cockspur Lighthouse and Battery Garland.
- Some of Greater Savannah’s best seafood restaurants, like Crab Shack and The Deck Beach Bar & Kitchen, amongst other dining options. See more restaurants and bars here (https://tybeeisland.com/restaurants-page/).
- Tybee hosts five distinct beaches: Tybee North Beach, Tybee South Beach, Tybee Mid Island Beach, Tybee Back River Beach, and Savannah River Beach. There is also Little Tybee Island just a short boat ride away.
There’s also a number of places to enjoy drinks, karaoke, dancing, nightlife and more (see full list here).
As can be seen, Tybee possesses the small island community appeal, while packing larger city amenities, such as Savannah only being roughly 20 minutes away and the airport less than an hour.
