Where to stay

Most of the action is centered on the south end of the island, which features a lively pier and plenty of independent cafes and restaurants. You'll also be just steps from boutiques and gift stores strung along 16th Street and Butler Avenue.

If you're craving peace and quiet, escape to the north, where you'll be close to the Tybee Island Light Station and Museum and Savannah River Beach, a sheltered stretch of sand with gently lapping waves.

Things to see

Commissioned by General James Oglethorpe in 1732, Tybee Lighthouse has been guiding ships into the Savannah River for centuries. Today you can climb 178 steps up to the lantern room to admire the 9-feet-tall First Order Fresnel lens and take in panoramic views over the coast. There are water sports aplenty on Tybee Island, with surfing, kayaking, standup paddle boarding, and jet skiing all within reach. Kids love the colorful Tybee Marine Science Center, which offers a glimpse of Georgia's vibrant coastal ecosystem. For a change of scene, head to Little Tybee Island, an uninhabited enclave accessible only by kayak or passenger boat. Deserted beaches, subtropical forests, and lush marshlands make it popular with hikers, birdwatchers, and beachcombers. Tybee Island is a favorite nesting spot for loggerhead sea turtles, so be sure to watch your step on the beaches if you're visiting from May to October.
