The City of Tybee Island's Ocean Rescue provides seasonal Lifeguard Services between April and September, and we encourage the public to swim in life-guard protected areas. Please obey all beach rules and pay attention to our information and warnings signs. Lifeguard stands are located at North Beach, 3rd St, 10th St, 14th thru 19th St and Chatham Avenue. Lifeguard Headquarters are located at the base of the Pier/Pavilion next to the Marine Sience Center in the Strand parking lot.

On seasonal weekends, holidays, and days when there are a lot of visitors, our Parking Services staff will attempt to keep you updated on where the best places to park are on the island. When indications show 100% full at all locations, you will have a very difficult time finding a place to park! Be sure to check before you come to avoid a day of cruising the lots!
