These Photos Will Make You Want to Tour the Tybee Island Lighthouse ASAP
This lighthouse is one of the most iconic sights on Tybee Island. And whether you’ve visited it once or 100 times, there’s something truly magical about the black-and-white beacon.
Maybe it’s the location. North Beach is pretty grand, after all.
Perhaps it’s the symbolism and importance of its enormous light, still active and essential to ships entering the Savannah River.
It could also be because it’s Georgia’s oldest and tallest existing lighthouse.
Whatever the reason, there’s nothing quite like it. Climb the 178 steps and prepare yourself to be awed.
The architecture is authentic.
The views are splendid. With a vantage point like this, it’s nearly impossible to take a bad photo!
Seriously! Just try.
Even from afar, the lighthouse is a beauty.
I mean, come on.
The lighthouse is incredibly photogenic.
Even when it’s sharing the spotlight with other Tybee Island icons.
There’s a reason everyone wants a photo with it.
