Back River Beach, Tybee Island

(4.5/5 based on 30 reviews on the web)
Back River Beach provides great kayaking opportunities, while offering scenic views of the marsh and the smaller island. The strong currents and lack of lifeguards mean the beach is not appropriate for swimming. However, you can walk on the soft sand, fish from the wooden pier, and try to spot dolphins. During low tide, the strip of wet sand separating land and sea lures shell-seekers. Put Back River Beach into our Tybee Island travel itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Sad that so many boat trailers take up the little parking that they have. But not many spaces as it is. But was clean and kept good. 
  • another beach on the River, is also quiet and calm, it is harder to get than the beaches on the ocean, but it's worth it, the less people here, you can sail on Small Tybee
