Tybee Island, Savannah, 31328
Spend the afternoon in a beach town.
A Quick Getaway to the Beach
Located 20 to 30 minutes from Savannah, Tybee Island is a wide, flat, and long beach. We recommend parking prior to town if possible before 12th Street to avoid big crowds. Street parking can be tricky but patience will be your friend to best enjoy a relaxing beach experience.
If you’re looking for a beach town scene, drive to the end of Tybee Island and you’ll find an assortment of beach shops and restaurants.
It was pretty chaotic and commercial for what we were seeking but it’s important to note that it was a Saturday. That said, it was awesome to tour the lighthouse and there are surfing, biking, sea kayaking, and other opportunities to enjoy out on the water. For beach and cruising needs, we recommend Tim’s Bike and Beach Gear for rentals on either the north or the south end of the island.
If you're looking for a place to stay in Savannah, Old Harbour Inn is relatively close and is in an exciting part of Savannah. It's really fun to bring your bikes and ride the six-mile Rail Trail to the beach at Tybee Island from Savannah.
