Tybee Island Guide and Travel Information

Tybee Island Beaches
Tybee Island has miles of expansive beaches that can stretch for as far as the eye can see at low tide. Tybee high tide has ample beach for body surfing and our low tide expands the beach to hundreds of yards wide to allow for bicycling and paddle sports. The five miles of beach are wide and clean, with gentle waves and warm water, and granite sand that is perfect for making sandcastles. There are five major beaches on Tybee, including South Beach, Mid Beach, North Beach, Savannah River Beach, and Back River Beach.

Tybee Beach Amenities
Tybee has more than five miles of wide and easily accessible public beaches. In fact, Tybee boasts Georgia's most expansive and newly renourished beach, just completed in January 2009. There are bikes available for rent nearby, with a variety of shops and eateries off the beach, making it easy to grab a bite or pick up any last minute necessities. The Pier and Pavillion serve as the epicenter of Tybee, and are located near the downtown area.

Bird Watching on Tybee Island
Tybee Island is relatively underdeveloped, creating a natural habitat for bird sanctuarys. Bird watching is a favorite pasttime on Tybee, and you're never more than a five-minute bike ride from a beach, tidal creek or maritime forest. Bird lovers will spot red-billed Oystercatchers and Black Skimmers near the North Beach area of the island year-round. Other species you'll spot include Purple Sandpipers, black-bellied plovers, northern gannets, salt marsh sparrows, Red-throated Loons, Lesser Blackbacked Gulls, migrant passerines, sanderlings, dunlins, knots, willets, and Tybee's official bird the painted bunting.

Little Tybee Island
Accessible only by boat, Little Tybee Island is an unspoiled, uninhabited nature preserve. Here you'll find coastal salt marshes, natural dunes and beaches, and subtropical forests of live oak, pine and palm trees. An amazing variety of wildlife makes its home here, including egrets, heron, roseate spoonbills, ospreys, bald eagles, white ibis and the endangered woodstork.

Surfing, Parasailing and Kiteboarding
The best surfing is at mid to high tide, with west, southeast or northeast winds. While relatively tame surfing compared to the other coast, surfing here is suitable for both long and short board and most any skill level. There are several shops on the island who can rent surf and other watersports equipment.
