Who knew there was so many free things to do on Tybee Island?
Watching the sunset or sunrise is a magical part of Tybee Beaches. There are four distinct beaches on our island. And we would love to tell you a little about each of them:
North Beach starts as you come onto the island and stretches to the big anchor at the curve on Butler Avenue. The North Beach is a great place for bird watching. It is also a great spot for watching the cargo ships come into the ports at the Savannah River.
Mid-Island starts at the big anchor and goes to 14th Street. For those looking for an adventure, you can search the beaches for shark’s teeth and unique sea shells along the shore.
South Beach begins at 14th Street and extends to the tip of the island. This is your busiest beach of them all. South Beach includes the Pier & Pavilion where you can see fishermen pull in their catch, people watch, dolphin watch and enjoy the scenery. South Beach is great for all occasions and has many local shopping and eateries across the parking lots.
Back River Beach starts at the tip of the island and goes all the way to Alley 3. This is where you’ll find a more private beach with a pier for fishing. It is a great location for dolphin watching as well. It also has the perfect view of Little Tybee, a small island across the water way accessible by boat.
