Tybee Island, located on the coast of Savannah, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, has long been a quiet getaway for the residents of Savannah, and has become a popular vacation spot with tourists from outside the Savannah metropolitan area. Tybee Island has 6 ½ miles of beaches and is situated 18 miles east of Historic Savannah and 32 miles from the Savannah/Hilton Head airport. Many activities are available on Tybee Island, kayaking, surf fishing, deep sea fishing, parasailing, lighthouse tours, jet skiing, dolphin watching on the Back River or on a dolphin tour, and live music. You can visit the community pier and pavilion, enjoy fine and casual dining in over 35 restaurants, and browse the many unique shops on Tybee. Officially renamed "Savannah Beach" in a publicity move at the end of the 1950s, the city of Tybee has since reverted to its original name. Tybee has the distinct honor of being voted the 2009 “#1 Healthiest Beach in America” by Health Magazine. Additional mentions include: “Readers Choice Best Beach” by Georgia Magazine, “Best One Tank Trip” Atlanta Journal Constitution, “Best Beach Retreat” Creative Loafing Atlanta and “#2 Top Budget Getaway” Southern Living Magazine.
