Trip Planner: USA / Georgia / Georgia Coast / Golden Isles of Georgia / Jekyll Island / 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.
Driftwood Beach reviews
If you come to Jekyll Island, please make time to visit Driftwood Beach. The experience is truly amazing when you see the trees. You can take some great family pictures in the evening. more »
We strolled along the beach and were blown away by the shape and size of the trees. Very relaxing and enjoyable afternoon followed by dinner at Tortuga Jack's down the road a bit. more »
I really enjoyed this beach and learning its history. They have some of the old structures there from 30-40 years ago. I remember visiting this beach 30 years ago and it looks totally different. There was way more beach then. I am glad they are trying to preserve it. We were able explore with our tour guide. This is a nice tucked away gem.
I loved this beach growing up and now my children love it as much as I did. Not only is it one of the most beautiful places I've seen, it's so much fun to explore! This is my favorite place to hunt shells, sea glass, and shark's teeth.
