If you have not had the chance to walk this white sand beach and taken in the beautiful sights of the driftwood trees scattered along this shoreline, plan a stop and walk when you’re on Jekyll Island. Take your camera, and keep your eyes glued...More

This was such a cool beach. It was fun to walk along the trees that are scattered along the beach. My kids had fun climbing them, which made for cool photos. A must see while on Jekyll Island.

Driftwood Beach is a great place to stop for about 30 to take a stroll on the beach. Our boys loved climbing on the driftwood! Beautiful place to take pictures.

Driftwood Beach offered unobstructed views of the Atlantic with old driftwood trees, plenty of shells and compact sand that was easy to walk on and wouldn't get stuck in your shoes.

I took a long walk on this beach while the tide was low on a cool, cloudy day. Driftwood Beach is stunning even on a grey day. It is my favorite beach in Georgia. We should really keep this beach as a secret! Ssshhh!

There are two areas for parking right by the pathways that lead to the beach. We went during Spring Break and had no issues finding a spot.
