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.

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.
