Not much to say, but this is a must-see on Jekyll Island. We agree with another reviewer who says there is not much signage. Actually, as far as we could see, there was NO signage. So, get a Jekyll Island map (free all over the...More

Not to be missed - surreal feeling as if you are on a different planet! Dead trees bent in all shapes half buried in the sand with the ocean as the back drop.

This was on our "must-see" list since we were in the area. It is advertised heavily in brochures, and yet the island hasn't seen fit to put up any sort of signage to make it easier for people to find. We were driving in two...More

Spend all day playing on the beach and enjoying the views of Jekyll, the ocean and nearby islands and watch the light house from St. Simons!

Driftwood Beach was on my bucket list and while on vacation at Jekyll Island I took a 5 minute shuttle ride for a walk on the beach. The driftwood is so beautiful. I totally appreciate the nature’s masterpiece. Water is very calm and some people...More

The surreal landscape of the beach is a photographers dream. A must see. If you have children prepare to have them climb everywhere. Perfect place for family portrait.

Spent some time here last summer. It is a must see if you are in the area, and great for taking pictures. It was not crowded at all when we went (in August). I will say it's not really a place for "sitting on the...More

Awesome beach to walk along. The fallen trees were amazing. A great place to take pictures! Would love to stay there longer than a day.

We spent a few hours over here, and while we did drive right by it the first time as it's not really marked, we found our way back and had an amazing couple of hours poking around on the beach. The sheer beauty of this...More

Really unique beach, lots of mini wildlife ☺️ Lots of tiny sea animals running around along the driftwood and in the washed up rocks. The water is shallow for a while making it perfect for the kids to play and parents not get too worried....More

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.
