Shine a Light on Island History at Tybee Lighthouse

Literally a beacon of the good times that await during your next Savannah beach vacation, this historic light station is an iconic sight on the Georgia coast. With almost 280 years of history, Tybee Island Lighthouse has been rebuilt 4 times since 1736, ultimately receiving a new upper section after being damaged during the Civil War. Visitors today are welcome to climb to the top of its 178 winding stairs, and behold the impressive 9-foot fresnel lens.

  • Does Tybee Island have 1 or 2 lighthouses?

    There are 2 lighthouses on or around the island: Tybee Island Light Station, and Cockspur Lighthouse. No longer lit, the latter is often stranded by high tide on an islet off the coast of Fort Pulaski, and is best viewed from a scenic overlook trail inside the park.
  • How many times was the lighthouse rebuilt?

    The lighthouse that stands today is actually the fourth. The first was built in 1736, followed by a second in 1741. Both were destroyed due to their proximity to the water. The third, built in 1773, was badly damaged during the Civil War. However, instead of being fully rebuilt once again, only the upper section was replaced, which still stands today.
