I have reviewed Driftwood Beach before and I'm doing it again! I love coming here it's so peaceful and very beautiful to me! It's very relaxing and quiet if you're an early riser like me! It's a delightful place to take beautiful photos also!

If you visit in High Tide DO NOT GO IN THE WATER! There are a bunch of rocks under water, along with clams that will cut you like they did to me. I ended up with 27 cuts including a huge gash on my foot that required stitches. However, the following day I went in the morning during low-mid tide... More

We go to driftwood beach for the beauty, and natural serenity of the place. Our son enjoyed seeing the little crabs everywhere. When you are here its like you are a million miles away from everything. Absolutely beautiful. Please pick up after yourself when you leave.

The beach is not a Daytona or Clearwater beach. It's beauty is the driftwood that is seen and the erosion that is moving the island south.

Don't go to the entrance at the north end of the island near a campground. That portion only has a few tree's. Find the entrance that is actually before it, just south east of that one. Once you find it and enter, you'll be very amazed by the site, it's just like the pictures you see elsewhere.

We didn't spend an extended amount of time here. The water is dirty and the beach does have a smell to it. There are plenty of crabs and sand roaches. It is worth stopping to see the driftwood, it is a beautiful sight. It is very hard to find this beach, drive past the campgrounds about a mile and you... More

One of the most beautiful places I have every been to. I went at dusk and it was breathtaking. You will take a million pictures and wish you took more.

We took so many pictures! Plus the parking area has amazing Oaks with Spanish Moss! We went during early afternoon... Would love to go back in the late afternoon or close to sunset! Absolutely the coolest beach I've been to and not very crowded at all.
