Area Attractions

Tybee Island Light Station

Tybee's Light Station, built in 1773, is Georgia's oldest and tallest lighthouse, and one of America's most complete historic light stations. All of its original support buildings are still located on the five-acre site off US-80 at Fort Screven. Still a functioning navigational aid, the station's light, courtesy of a first order Fresnel lens, can be seen 18 miles out to sea.

Visitors willing to climb the 178 steps to the top of the recently restored lighthouse will enjoy a spectacular view of the entire island. The newly renovated head keeper's cottage, the Tybee Museum and gift shop are also on site.

Tybee Island Museum

The Tybee Museum is located off US-80 in a 1898 coastal Georgia artillery battery at Fort Screven, the site of the Tybee Light Station. The museum features collections of historical items, pictures and relics that chronicle nearly 400 years of the island's history.

Fort Pulaski National Monument

Today, the fort is a remarkably well preserved example of 19th century military architecture. Fort Pulaski is located just 2 miles west of Tybee Island off US-80, and is open daily from 9:00 to 5:00.

Tybee Marine Science Center

Visit the Tybee Island Marine Science Center to view marine life indigenous to the Georgia coast. The aquariums and exhibits are home to an amazing variety of fish, reptiles, invertebrates, corals and other interesting sea creatures. Feel a shark skin or touch a whale bone in the Discovery Room and "shake hands" with a hermit crab in the popular touch tank.

Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion

A great spot to people watch and also for fishing. The Pier was built in 1996 on the site of the Tybrisa Pavilion which burned in 1967.
