South Beach, Savannah

3.2
#5 of 8 in Beaches in Georgia
South Beach offers swimming and outdoor activities, as well as restaurants, shops, and fishing spots. Lie in the sun on the wide, sandy beach, head out for a swim or snorkel, and explore the dunes. You can find numerous pen and scallop shells at low tide, as well as starfish, sea snails, and crabs. Walk along the 215 m (700 ft) long pier, then put your feet in the water while sipping a coffee--or join the fishermen at work. Numerous birds inhabit the area, and photography spots abound. Our Savannah itinerary builder makes visiting South Beach and other Savannah attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    What a gorgeous place to visit. Sun, surf, and sand...can't ask for much more. The beach is fairly well kept. We also go to see a marked sea turtle nest.  more »
