The Eastside Islands Likely the most well-known and popular island off the east coast of Savannah is Tybee Island. A resort island offering various short-term and vacation rentals, this island has entertainment and restaurants enough to make a perfect vacation spot. The flipside of Tybee is that it is also harbors a residential community of about 4000 from which a variety of homes can be selected ranging from opulent historic homes found in what once was a military post for officers to oceanfront beach homes. This community is an independent municipality providing its own services and has created its own sense of unity. A Sunday morning walk along the south-end pier will conjure the painters dream scene of pier fishing with a pavilion in the background. Friday evenings may call neighbors to live-band music or a stroll to the Tybee Lighthouse offers a photographer's focal point. Tybee Island is a perfect island getaway that, once you've felt the sand of the three-mile beach under your feet, and had the inviting waves of the Atlantic tickling your toes, you may just decide to retire your shoes and live the island life.
Wilmington Island The largest of all the Savannah coastal islands, Wilmington Island offers ample residential neighborhoods and gives residents the benefit of preserved mature tree growth throughout the developments.

Mom's can have coffee while kids play at the park. The community is of a size that people know one another and are neighborly; not just neighbors.
