Useful Information about the Savannah Islands area
Tybee Island is a city and a barrier island located in Chatham County, Georgia, 18 miles (29 km) east of Savannah, United States. Though the name “Tybee Island” is used for both the island and the city, geographically they are not identical: only part of the island’s territory lies within the city.
The island is the easternmost point in Georgia. The famous phrase “From Rabun Gap to Tybee Light,” intended to illustrate the geographic diversity of Georgia, contrasts a mountain pass near the state’s northernmost point with the coastal island’s famous lighthouse.
As of the 2010 census, the city’s population was 2,990. The entire island is a part of the Savannah Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Officially renamed “Savannah Beach” in a publicity move at the end of the 1950s, the city of Tybee Island has since reverted to its original name. (The name “Savannah Beach” nevertheless appears on official state maps as far back as 1952 and as recently as the mid-1970s.) The small island, which has long been a quiet getaway for the residents of Savannah, has become a popular vacation spot with tourists from outside the Savannah metropolitan area. Tybee Island is home to the first of what would eventually become the Days Inn chain of hotels, the oft-photographed Tybee Island Light Station, and the Fort Screven Historic District.
Wilmington Island is a census-designated place (CDP) in Chatham County, Georgia, United States. The population was 15,138 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Savannah, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area. The communities of Wilmington Island form a large and affluent suburb of Savannah, where most residents work. The island lies east of Savannah between the town of Thunderbolt and the beach community of Tybee Island.
Whitemarsh Island (pronounced “WIT-marsh”) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Chatham County, Georgia, United States. The population was 6,792 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Savannah Metropolitan Statistical Area. The communities of Whitemarsh Island are a relatively affluent suburb of Savannah.
Skidaway Island is a barrier island and census-designated place (CDP) in Chatham County, Georgia, United States. The population was 8,341 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Savannah Metropolitan Statistical Area. A very affluent community, the island is well known for its waterfront properties and golf courses within The Landings, one of the largest gated communities in the country. Skidaway Island is home to the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, a research institution operated by the University of Georgia and used by UGA scholars and researchers as well as those from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Savannah State University, the College of Coastal Georgia, and other universities.
It is uncertain why the name “Skidaway” was applied to this island; the name may be derived from a word in Yamacraw or another Native American Creek language. In his 1967 publication How Georgia Got Her Names, Hal E. Brinkley stated that the name might be an Anglicized form of Scenawki, the wife of the Yamacraw chief Tomochichi, for whom Georgia’s founder James Oglethorpe named the island.
In a March 2019 referendum, Skidaway Island voters overwhelmingly rejected a bill that would have incorporated their community as the City of Skidaway Island. The island remains unincorporated. Learn More
