According to one travel publication, it’ll take you less than 30 minutes (well, on a good day…) to get to one of the best beaches in the United States.
In a recent rundown of their picks for the best beaches in the country to visit, Travel & Leisure listed nearby North Beach on Tybee Island among their selections. Other picks included Poipu Beach in Kauai, Hawaii; Coronado Beach in San Diego, Calif.; Clearwater Beach, Fla.; Wrightsville Beach, N.C.; and Coney Island Beach in Brooklyn, N.Y.
People are coming, but where to stay?: Tybee moves closer to limiting STVRs on the island. Here’s what we know.

Also among the picks was Coligny Beach Park on Hilton Head Island — a quick hour drive, give or take, from Savannah.
According to the Travel & Leisure story, North Beach makes the cut due to being “a peaceful, family-friendly spot frequented by locals,” adding that “the stunning 360-degree views from the top of the historical Tybee Island Lighthouse are well worth the climb, especially during sunrise and sunset.”
For those looking for a bite to eat, they also suggested a visit to North Beach Bar & Grill for a drink or plate of food.
Better than Hawaii though? We’ll leave that to the comments.
