This is a secluded spot on Jekyll Island that is very peaceful and serene. Great spot for photography and making memories with your family. This is a beautiful island with lots of wildlife and folks riding bikes! Be careful and have fun!! We went to experience the Shrimp & Grits Festival and came upon this gorgeous site by accident.

This beach is like stepping into a different world. Amazingly, there are not usually many people on the beach which makes the experience of walking among the fallen trees even more special.

Driftwood Beach is the highlight of our yearly trip. We just love coming here and walking around, taking pictures and seeing all the different sea life. It's isolated so there is never more than a handful of people walking around at any given time. Just make sure the tide is out! We have explored and found dozens and dozens of... More

Huge whitened trees, roots and all, decorate the beach. We expected to see much smaller pieces, this was more like Mother Nature's Art Show, quite beautiful.

Last day of our trip and we stopped and checked out the beach, totally wonderful. To hear the water and feel the sand between your toes, just way to good to miss! My only regret was the fact we weren't able to spend more time but with the weather that day, raining off and on so much we couldn't. I'll... More

We went to take pictures for a school project and we were not disappointed. The trees are amazing! You have to go early to get pictures without people.

The last stop on my mother daughter birthday trip was Jekyll Island. I saw that Driftwood Beach was one of the top things to do on the Georgia Coast and boy was I glad we made the stop. It was $6 to get in for a daily pass. They machine is automated and takes cash and cards. As you drive... More

there's no place like Driftwood Beach in Georgia. It's peaceful and enchanting and mysterious...just downright beautiful. Beautiful wedding destination, family photo opportunity, picnic spot, or beach trip!

Driftwood Beach is at the top of the amazing places I have visited. It is absolutely beautiful and serene. I have told a lot of friends about this beach because I was in awe. The "driftwood" is actual trees that are embedded in the sand. My husband, daughter and I took our rented bikes around the island- which is perfect... More
