Discover Tybee Island, considered Savannah’s beach. Only 20 minutes from downtown Savannah, Tybee Island gives you the chance to feel the Atlantic breeze and dip your toes in the water. The Tybee Island Light Station and Museum is the home of a lighthouse more than 285 years old. Walk up 178 steps to the top of the lighthouse for a beautiful view of the island and the ocean alike.
