Tybee Island Light Station


We are glad you are looking into visiting Tybee Island. Whether you are a history buff, naturalist, or just someone looking at getting away for the weekend, there is something for you here at Tybee Island.

The Lightstation and Museum are surely a stop you do not want to miss. We welcome individuals, families, and groups here. While you are here for an extended stay, look into volunteering at the Light Station. The information gained while on your duty will give you an appreciation of the Light Station you will not be able to obtain elsewhere. We encourage you to visit our Gift Shop to support our efforts. We also look forward to seeing you after your journey up our 178 steps to the top.

Tours are self guided. At the Lighthouse and Head Keepers Cottage there are volunteers on hand to answer questions.
