Parking on Tybee Island

General Parking Rules

Parking fees on Tybee Island help to support much of the lifestyle that you and Tybee Locals enjoys. Parking supports lifeguards on the beach, keeping the beach clean, providing emergency services, and supplying our July 4th Fireworks, and warning everyone of impending inclement weather from the wind and tides.


Because of this, you 8 AM-8PM, 365 days a year, even weekends and holidays.  Anyone purchasing parking should willl find that there is no free public parking on Tybee Island.  The City of Tybee Island  enforces parking fees from pPay before leaving the car, ensuring the receipt is on the dash of your car.

The City of Tybee Island utilizes Pay-and-Display machines to collect parking fees.   The barrier gate systems have been removed from the parking lots.  Many of the traditional parking meters have been removed as well.


Regardless, the rates throughout Tybee Island are $2 per hour, 8AM-8PM, year-round.  Additionally, visitors may purchase up to 3 days parking with a credit card at the Pay & Display Machines.
