Create an itinerary including Driftwood Beach
On the north end of Jekyll Island, Driftwood Beach resembles a graveyard for trees. Oak and pine roots protrude from these shores due to the gradual erosion of the north shore. In some cases, entire full-sized trees have washed ashore. The intricate designs of wave-worn driftwood make for an excellent photo-op. Driftwood Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

  • Really unique beach with driftwood everywhere! People were using the driftwood to hang up towels and backpacks. Great picture backgrounds.

  • We had to wait a few minutes to get in but boy was it worth the wait! We ordered shrimp and grits with sweet potato souffle. Out of this world! We also ordered the stuffed flounder with fried green tomatoes and mashed potatoes. Everything was awesome.. I had waited to try shrimp and grits for several weeks while we were in Florida and I think I waited till the perfect spot. It was excellent. Service was great, too.
  • It’s was a romantic, fun, special, peaceful place. The driftwood trees were absolutely beautiful. The view of the trees, white sand & ocean was breathtaking. Great place to take pictures & share kisses with your significant other. Fun for the kids. Friendly people. Laid back scenery. They also have horseback riding. Great getaway from the city life.
