My husband and I took a day trip down to South Beach while we were staying in Savannah! It was very peaceful. A great place to take a family, plenty of room not crowded at all! There were some good places to eat and souvenir shop

Spent half day on Tybee Island - island is 3 square miles - nice beaches and one street filled with tee shirt shops/beach items. Stroll out on the pier and enjoy fishing or just sitting enjoying the breeze

We went to Tybee Island beach for the day on Saturday. The beaches are busy, busy, busy. But we had a fun time. We took drinks and snacks and spent about 4 hours there. The beaches are beautiful, big and lots of sand for stretching out.

We drove over to this beach from Savannah even though it was February. The parking was easy, and there was a very nice nature center right in the parking lot by the beach. Sand was very clean and the restrooms were also clean and good for changing. We got very up close to a pelican and had some lovely beach-combing.... More

Drive over from Savannah was more enjoyable than being on island. Very crowded, no parking, limited "tourist" shops. Not worth going in my opinion.

It is crowded which was some frustrating to me as i try to avoid crowds. The beach was nice and clean. There are alot of restaurants and shops right off the beach. Parking is pain of course. Nice fishing pier for the family to walk around and relax.

Tybee is a classic beach community about 20 minutes from downtown Savannah. A nice pier and clean beach with all of the things that go with a bustling beach community. But you can't get there by public transportation - too bad!

We traveled out to the beach for the sunrise one morning, beautiful. Spent some time photographing that and walking along the beach, took in the lighthouse, and then down to the pier. Very nice relaxing morning.

One of our favorite beaches ever!! We rented bicycles & road the beach from South to North. Beautiful powdery white sand on the south end, north beach the sand was more brown with lots of seashells.

This beach was nice and clean but incredibly crowded. There are tons of restaurant and souvenir shops right off the beach. Parking is limited, and you have to pay either at meters with quarters off the beach or with a card in the beach parking lots, which fill up quickly. The businesses don't let you use their restaurant or give... More
