This is Tybee's "grand strand," the center of the summer beach action. Anchored by a 700-foot pier that is sometimes host to summer concerts, this stretch of shoreline is your best bet for people-watching and beach activities. Just off the sand at the bustling intersection of Tybrisa Street and Butler Avenue, a cluster of watering holes, souvenir shops, bike shacks, and oyster bars makes up Tybee's main business district. There's metered street parking as well as two good-size
lots. Both fill up fast during the high season, so arrive early. There are public restrooms at the Pier and at 15th and Tybrisa streets. The pier is popular for fishing and is also the gathering place for fireworks displays. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguard, parking (fee), toilets. Best for: partiers, sunrise, surfing, swimming.
