Pictures dont do this beach justice. The windswept trees, the remains of old cement picnic tables and old pipes jutting from the sand mixed with thr sand and rocks makes for an interesting walk along this beach

The morning I went to Driftwood Beach it was a very foggy morning and it was kind of eerie feeling. Very easy access and well worth the stop. You won't be disappointed.

Love going down to the beach. But keep in mind Time of High Tide!!! I know from experience. We had to cross water where there was none.... That was a few years ago!!!

This area is a must see if you visit Jekyll Island. The pictures don't show the magnitude of the large fallen trees. This would be a great place to play hide and seek. Kids would love to climb on the trees.

Great place for a walk. Enjoyed the serenity of the walk and the beauty of the deadwood. Take your camera. Black and white photo ops abound

Beautiful natural setting beach, not crowded and not what you think of as traditional beach. Driftwood was really neat to see. More nature-type experience, worth the visit! Great photo opps. Good place to bicycle to from wherever you stay on island.

We walked the whole beach from the pier. It is more beautiful than the pictures can express! And a must for The Walking Dead dans!

I apologize for the too long delay in my reply. The beach is on the north end of the island with an east facing....so I was seriously wrong about setting sun. It's rising.

The beach is located on Jekyll island so you firstly need to pay the $6 vehicle entry fee to enter the island. Once you go through the entrance toll, all the attractions/ sites are quite easily signposted. You definitely... More
