Back River Beach, Tybee Island

(30+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.
