Tybee Island proudly offers five miles of sandy public beaches, endless ocean breezes and a laid-back island vibe. Located just 20 minutes east of historic Savannah, this authentic Southern beach town boasts plenty of fresh seafood, sunshine and family-friendly fun all year-round. Tybee offers a relaxed vacation experience, complete with beaches and bikes.

“We encourage visitors to experience all that Tybee Island has to offer this season, from the Tybee Island Pirate Festival to Tybee for the Holidays,” said Amy Gaster, chairman of the Tybee Island Tourism Council. “Our family-friendly atmosphere warmly welcomes visitors throughout the year. Plan a visit to Tybee Island and make memories to last a lifetime.”

Tybee is the kind of place where visitors can kick off their shoes, let their hair down and relax. It’s also the kind of place where kids can ride their bikes to a local ice cream parlor and where families can spend quality time together.

Discover quaint beach cottages, historic lighthouses and sandy beaches on this barrier island haven. Watch pelicans soaring overhead and dolphins swimming just off shore. Savor wild Georgia shrimp, brought in fresh from local shrimp boats along Lazaretto Creek, and sip a frosty beverage as the sun sets over the marsh.

Tybee has plenty of activities to fill the day, from dawn to dusk. Active vacationers can try their hand at kayaking, parasailing, jet skiing and paddle boarding.
