Relax by the Shoreline
Visitors to Tybee Island have plenty of options when it comes to beaches! In total, there are three beaches at the edge of the island (South, Mid, and North Beach), as well as two river beaches (Savannah River Beach and Back River Beach). If you’d prefer a quieter experience, Savannah River Beach and North Beach are the two best options. North Beach is closest to Savannah, and a local favorite. South Beach is the most popular beach around, and it’s no wonder why! The sand is soft, the water is warm, and there is plenty of nearby parking.

This is also a fantastic spot for hiking, with seven well-maintained trails on the grounds. Admission is just $10 per person, so be sure to visit during your next trip to Savannah!
