Apparently almost everything is closed on the island on Tuesdays. You can still access the beach and facilities but most of the restaurants and other tourist spots were closed. Visited in March (during our Spring Break which was a few weeks before Georgia's Spring Break)...More

The North Beach is not nearly as crowded as the South Beach, although restaurant pickings are slim here. They do have large changing rooms, which is nice with the kids. There is no place to rinse off the sand as you come off the beach,...More

we visited on a windy day with high waves. Giant flocks of birds were feeding in the churning waves. Very interesting to seee. Quite a variety of sea birds.

Not super busy. Lots of shells if you like to walk along the waters edge. Beautiful place to spend the day. Lots of parking.

From Savannah go East. It is a beautiful drive and there are lots of boats to look at along the way. Don't rush, take your time and take in as much as you can.
