Sunrise is amazing here ... take your camera and get ready for a beautiful view! I took a walk down to Driftwood Beach and spent at least 30 minutes in awe of it's beauty. This was easily in the top 10 sunrises I have ever seen.

If you are in the area, definitely worth a stop to see the full size driftwood trees. Great for photography at any time of day!

This beach was really cool for taking lots of photos! We had a great time walking it. The beach was very clean except for a few dead jellyfish. There is no signage, so it could be easy to miss if you're not paying attention. This was a unique beach experiment for me.

Now, I'm not even sure if it was the right place. It was beautiful but after drift wood, there was one little area with some but I was disappointed there wasn't more. The beach was long enough to enjoy a walk, but if you are looking for drift wood for pictures or just to enjoy, it was lacking. I may... More

This place consists of a dirty fishing pier, dirty beach, dirty brown water and a few dead trees washed up on the beach. No one would dare go in the water. Someone on the pier caught a 5ft shark when we were there. Paraded the poor thing around before cutting it in half. So much for catch and release. Like... More

We always try to go to this beach when we visit Jekyll. The area is always clean and inviting. It's a great place to just sit and relax or have a photo op.

Blown away by the natural sculpting of the many trees and limbs, some of huge size forming enclosures of twisted weathered wood. We visited on a clear, sunny day and it was a delight to see many sea birds diving for food close to shore. The beach also offers a nice view across the inlet to St. Simon Island which... More
