The original pier named Tybrisa Pier and Pavilion was built by the Central of Georgia Railroad in 1891, four years after completing a line from Savannah to Tybee Island. It was a popular place for people escaping the intense summer heat in Savannah and was well-known from day-trippers to seasonal visitors. They lauded Tybee Island as the "Premier South Atlantic Resort" The Pier and Pavilion had an open dance floor amid the coastal setting, which made it a major hit with the Big Band tour and other entertainers for five decades. In 1967 fire destroyed the Tybrisa Pier and Pavilion, but then in 1996, after efforts of the people of Tybee Island and Chatham County, the Tybrisa Pavilion II was built, and it was dedicated on the 9th of August that year.
The Tybee beach Pier & Pavilion has become one of the premier entertainment venues in the area and in Chatham County. It has Full concessions, Bathrooms and is handicap accessible along with the fishing pier. Come check out and snap a few amazing photos of the Tybee Island beach Pier & Pavilion.
If you are looking to drop a line in off of the Tybee Island pier, then you are in luck as it is free to fish from the pier, but you do need a Georgia fishing license that you can get online at the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Resource Division or in-person at Chu’s gas station on Campbell Street.
