I had heard about this beach, but had never been until recently. It is so surreal, all the driftwood trees in a petrified state, white and skeletal in the sand. As an art photographer they were great subjects. I was there around noon so the shadows were fun to work with. Make sure you go at low or diminishing tide... More

Must stop. Sadly the sand gnats were horrible and everywhere so that limited our time there but must visit to see the driftwood.

Hauntingly beautiful and a very unique place. Great for photographs. We were there today in mid February and the sand gnats ate us alive. Even with bug spray they would bite in your ears or the inside of your nose. Bring lots of bug spray!

Driftwood Beach is on the North End of Jekyll Island. We accessed the beach from Clam Creek Rd. Clam Creek Rd is across Beachview Dr from the Campground. The short drive takes you to the north point of the island where access to the beach is a short walk across a pedestrian bridge. There is an elevated pier at the... More

This beach is a must when vacationing on Jekyll. It is beautiful , tranquil, and pet friendly. We always hang out here a few hours before heading back to Atlanta after a long weekend stay. If yu have not been to Jekyll, I strongly recommend it . Don't forget to check out Driftwood Beach while you are there.

Beautiful beach and unique. I recommended going early though (sunrise) to see it and get decent pictures. There are less people during this time. I would not bring an infant or young child here as you can easily fall on the rocks and driftwood. Also, bring bug spray as there are a lot of bugs flying around (or at least... More
