South End

South End Review

If your idea of a good beach day involves empty stretches of sand, unobstructed views, plenty of privacy, and the sound of crashing waves, then you should test the waters at the south end. As its name suggests, the south end is located at the southern tip of the island where Tybee's Back River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Riptides and strong currents are prevalent here, so use extreme caution when swimming. At low tide, the waters recede to expose a stunning system of sandbars that are great for shelling and spotting sea life. This is one of Tybee's prettiest beaches, and is worshipped by locals for its seclusion. There are no restaurants in the immediate vicinity, so it's a good idea to bring a cooler packed with snacks and beverages. Parking is tough, as there are just two very small metered lots. In the high season, arrive on the early or the late side, when crowds are thinner. Amenities: parking (fee). Best for: sunset, walking, windsurfing.
