Transportation on Tybee Island is very unique in that they offer many different varieties.
Because the island is only three miles in diameter, the best mode of transportation is your own two feet! Most of the shops, restaurants and attractions are all within walking distance of one another. Please note, there are two ends of the island, North and South, and both have their own personality. If you’re not a fan of walking, no worries! Tybee takes much pride in providing a bicycle friendly community for locals and visitors.
Take a morning bike ride down the beach at sunrise or an afternoon cruise through the local parks and trails. If you’re adventurous, you may want to try out the six-mile long McQueen’s Island Trail, aka Old Railroad Trail, along US-80. Watch the beautiful sun set across the open waters and you will find yourself in awe. It’s the perfect end to a great day on Tybee!
As far as bike rentals go, Tim’s Bike & Beach Gear and Fat Tire Bikes offer various types of bikes to rent for the day, multi-day or week. You can rent beach cruisers (kids and adults), adult tricycles and more! Also, both offer free delivery to wherever you are staying on the island.
Please make sure to stop by the Tybee Island Visitor’s Center when you arrive on the island. They are open seven days a week to assist you with your vacation. While there, you can receive more rental information for other means of transportation on Tybee Island such as golf carts, mopeds and scooters. Don’t forget to pick up a free map of Tybee to help guide you around the island during your stay. The visitor’s center is also your “go to” place for all things Tybee including restaurants, gift shops, and attractions.
