Create an itinerary including Back River 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. Take the guesswork out of planning a Tybee Island vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
