Tybee is a pristine barrier island with several distinct beaches, each offering a different, yet equally enjoyable experience. North Beach, which is the first beach you’ll come across as you enter the island, is a great place to watch birds as well as cargo ships as they enter the ports in Savannah. Mid Beach, which extends from North Beach’s end to 14th street, is a good location to hunt for seashells and shark teeth. South Beach, which features the Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion, sees the most traffic and is a great hangout for people-watching, volleyball and dolphin-spotting. And Back River, which you’ll find at the very tip of the island, offers a secluded beach experience with a fishing pier and great views of Little Tybee.
