I am so dissapointed in Tybee Island. My husband and I spent the day watching a dolphin try to save it's baby from a net or trap that had become wrapped around it. Someone called 911 and the Tybee Isl...and Fire Department responded. They were so casual about the whole thing that it was sickening. One fire fighter climbed up on the jetty with binoculars and, when I asked if anyone was coming to help, he told me that the DNR had been called and "It's a mama and baby. They are fine. They are still swimming". So we waited and watched. My husband wanted to get his life jacket and go help himself but I wouldn't let him. Another man swam out as far as he safely could hoping it would come to him but no luck. After 3 hours of waiting we went to the Tybee Island Marine and Science Center to see what was happening. One of the ladies called a friend to come help. An hour later, we knew something was wrong because the baby wasn't coming to the surface very often. There still was no help in sight. We went back to the Marine Center and were told that the baby was dead and that, following DNR protocol that they would have to wait till the baby's body washed ashore to figure out what happened to it. I know what happend to the poor little thing. Neglect killed that baby. Or politics. I haven't decided which. Shame on you all. See More

BEWARE: Tybee Island was one of the must sees on our vacation. After a beautiful day on the beach...climbing the lighthouse and spending time on the pier we were headed back to the hotel to look at al...l the pictures we took. On the way off the island we were pulled over by a cop. He literally had his car right next to the 45 miles an hour sign. I asked what I did wrong and he said that I was speeding. Didn't understand since I was going 47. According to him where I passed his car it was 35 miles an hour. Really? 5 feet from the sign. Guess locals know about this but tourists don't. Definitely a tourist trap and a dirty trick. Oh yeah and 257.00. See More

Rae Romano Will not go’s a very nice place as far as hotels & things to do however they are money grubbing not tourist least the police dept is not...BEWARE, they are o...ut to get you...was in circle by pier , police officer sitting in circle...we we site seeing...5 60 Plus yr plus women...there was another car in circle also, neither of us saw “ do not enter” as we exited the circle...not marked very clearly...the first car was approx 2 car lengths out of the circle, I followed and was 1 car length ur when officer put her lights on & pulled me & other car over....I explained did not see sign when another person in car saw I stopped to back up but could not due to her directly behind me...she refused to listen to me or other tourist in other car...just repeatedly said we drove down one way street, I tried to explain that I did not drive down only turned before realizing & that sign was not visible... mind you this was last week, only 1 other car parked on street so did not pose any danger to anyone....myself & other tourist received ticket of $295.00!! Within a couple minutes of driv away she had another car pulled over! If you google issues you will see similar complaints....obviously they are in the money making business & not concerned with tourism ....guess that is how they paid for the big beautiful new police station!

Do not go here. It is a rip off. No parking and they fail to inform you that there is no place to park that is free. If a city lot is full, and all other lots are full it doesn't matter. You could par...k a mile away and apparently will have to walk that mile to a kiosk and then back to your car. Where we parked there were no signs posted that said you couldn't park, nor were there signs that said you had to pay. Now there were streets that clearly had signs that you couldn't park. So hence my parking was legal as I was off road and on the right of way.. But since I had no ticket from a kiosk I was fined. It should clearly state the laws of Tybee on signs and it does not. This place is a ripoff and not worth it. I'm making sure I tell everyone about how they drum up fines by ripping people off. See More

Since moving from Wisconsin to Georgia, our daughter introduced us to Tybee Island.
Since our 1st visit 4 years ago, we set aside a week every year to vacation here as well as spending a couple days Savannah.
Such a wonderful time we always have and we love our island get away.
Monday my wife and I will be celebrating our 30th anniversary. Yep, you guessed it. We will be relaxing on a quiet beach on the north side of the island.
Though we will be metal detecting the south beach for hidden treasures. Since Hurricane Irma just flowed through, who knows what we may find?

I love Savannah and Tybee. I saw comments about trash on the beach, but it has always been clean to me. The people are always nice and welcome tourists. I go every chance I get. Lots of good food, ent...ertainment, and shopping. I do wish hotels would lower their prices, though. See More

Great Atmosphere...Very Family Friendly! My 1yr old had a ball! Beaches were clean an there were plenty of places to set up. Alcohol is allowed on the beach within limits...another plus! The parking i...s affordable ($2 an hr)...Plenty of spots close to the shore, which was great for a heart patient like myself. Beach Items outside of island was very cheap! No lifeguards harrasing you...Plenty of trash reciprocals. Only negative was there were no rinse stations...The City should look into paid booths for showers like at the truck daughter had to ride 2hrs home covered in sand an miserable � See More

We have found our new beach vacation spot. Better than Myrtle Beach. We found it by mistake going to Savannah last year it was so hot going to Savannah it was close o 100 degrees, we couldn't go so we drove to Tybee Island. The beach saved our vacation. We loved it there. See More

The beach is very nice however the amenities are filthy. The bathrooms at the the pier are not even fit to use. If you visit expect to pay a fortune in parking. I am not sure what the city does with t...he fees from the parking but it is not used to clean the restrooms. See More

We enjoy tybee, however, I hate to see all the trash left behind each day. I understand it's a public beach but perhaps something can be done about the junk left behind. The only complaint I have asid...e from the trash, is the smoking. It's unfortunate when someone sets up right next to you on the beach and puffs away while your kids (and sometimes their own) are feet away. See More

We love coming into Tybee when we are visiting Savannah. Found hotel prices expensive however we did find a great rate at a hotel during the off season and had a fantastic time staying on the island. ...We don't mind the drive in from Savannah and have had little problems finding parking. That said, I do think having to pay to park even if you're simply stopping into Arby's to grab takeout is NUTS. I get that money needs to be made for Tybee but the parking fees for spending the whole day on the island are pretty steep, hence a 4 vs. 5 star rating. We enjoy the more laid back, quieter atmosphere on Tybee than the beaches we are used to. Alcohol being permitted (within reason) is a nice change from what we are used to and a cold drink while sitting on the beach is quite nice. We will be relocating to the Savannah area and plan to spend a good bit of time at the beach! See More

Do not go here with your dog! I was an unaware tourist that was fined $509 for having my 4 lb, blind dog on the beach sitting beside me!! No signs posted where I entered, ruined my one day at the beac...h. Absolutely ridiculous!
This website is also wrong..... it states the fine for a dog is $290. I had to pay $509 whether I went to court or not! Injustice at its finest!!
Also, if you really want the truth and accurate reviews.....GO TO YELP, and see what folks had to say about Tybee!!
