Live in the Georgia Coast

Tybee Island

Savannah

Known as “Savannah’s Beach,” Tybee is loved by visitors and residents alike for the laid-back atmosphere, funky vibe, and small-community feel that only a beachside town can provide. While it’s easy to imagine days filled nothing more than the beach, a chair and a view, Tybee also offers plenty of activities, festivals and events, from wine festivals to parades, to keep the calendar filled.

And then there’s the added benefit of having historic downtown Savannah just 20 minutes away, meaning you can spend the day in beach bum attire relaxing by the water, and your evenings eating at a world-renowned restaurant and catching a show.

Like other seaside destinations, Tybee’s population swells during the tourist season, and reaches its quietest point in the winter. There are approximately 3,000 full-time residents, and if you were to ask, you’d find that more than a few started out as visitors to this special little island, before they ended up as residents. It’s just that kind of place.
