The fact that they have a petite order or regular size was what worked well for me. I do not like oversized plates of food that I can never finish. The petite was perfect size & price

Not the beaches fault, but we came at high tide when it was cold. Still, nice place to walk the dog and good site seeing.

Enjoyed walking the beach and saw lots of evidence of the recent hurricanes. It looked like a well or brick structure of some kind washed up on shore. Very unique place and glad we took the time.

Driftwood beach looked different this time as the recent Hurricane Irma had hit this area. Great views and interesting beach with the upended trees, profuse birdlife and good walks.

Nce location to explore the beach. Plenty of driftwood. Jekyll Island at its finest. Worth a visit for sure.

Great place to do a small trekking, or rent a bike. You have a "unique" landscape and the place is a good option on your way to SC or even to SAvannah. Be aware that to enter the island you need to pay $6.

Driftwood Beach should not be missed. It's very unique. Remember to wear hiking shoes or at least athletic shoes and not flip flops for a somewhat difficult access.

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
