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.

  • Super cool spot. We just happened to walk out at golden hour before sunset and there were tons of photographers here (and people). Well worth it for the sunset views. Very cool experience, ample parking (including ADA), and easy to access sand trails to the beach.
  • This is a really cool site to experience due to it's unique nature. Although you can certainly try to swim here it isn't the best beach for that setup, especially with kids with other places like the dune beach close at hand. The views late or early morning with the shadows on the fallen wood is amazing. Awesome place to enjoy a stroll and nature though.
