Tybee Island is a barrier island and city situated 18 miles (29 kilometers) east of Savannah, Georgia. It’s the closest beach resort to Atlanta and connected to the mainland by the Islands Expressway.
The original inhabitants of the island were the Native American Euchee tribe. Tybee is the Euchee word for salt. The area was discovered by Spanish explorers in 1520.
Because of its 3 miles (5 kilometers) of beaches, Tybee Island has been a magnet for tourists since the late 1800s. Today you’ll find a relaxed atmosphere here, something that is celebrated every May during the Beach Bum Parade. Find the quietest beaches at the city’s northernmost and southernmost points. Spot dolphins in the north or go surfing in the south.
Getting around is easy by car, but most parking has a fee. The streets are flat, so renting a bike is a very good alternative. Alternatively, jump on the Tybee Island Beach Shuttle, which runs between the Savannah Visitor Center and Tybee Lighthouse.
In 1763 the Tybee Island Lighthouse was the tallest structure in the U.S. Climb the 178 steps to the top for incredible views of the coastline and the Savannah River. While in the area, stop by the Tybee Museum at Fort Screven to learn about the city’s development from a tribal community into a thriving tourist destination.
Don’t miss a visit to the Tybee Beach Pier and Pavilion, a popular fishing spot that also regularly hosts special events and performances, including the Independence Day fireworks display. Close to the pier, kids will enjoy the activities at Tybee Island Marine and Science Center.
Be sure to enjoy the many restaurants on Tybee Island. At the more than 30 establishments, chefs combine traditional Southern flavors with freshly caught seafood. Take the kids to The Crab Shack to enjoy seafood platters while watching the alligator pond, and to sample Southern classics such as mac and cheese, and pecan pie.

We had a good time. Nice atmosphere around the pool and the hotel was right in the middle of everything. The only 2 things i suggest is making sure all the rooms have ice buckets. I know multiple people said they didn't have them either. And you have possible patio areas on level 2 and 3 if you'd ...
I had two minor issues; bathroom fan was very low and tv didn't have a premium channel for good movie section. Overall I enjoyed my stay.
Convenient location to everything. Clean room and pleasant staff. Checking in and out was very quick ans simple.
Great location! You can walk to the shops and take an evening stroll to the pier or beach without using your vehicle. Rooms were nice but could have been a little cleaner. Staff was very friendly and helpful. When Would use them again.
The location of the property is excellent - on the beach and close to good food. Not too close to the rowdy night life. The parking is somewhat crowded.
