“breathtaking ... beautiful ... and a real trip”
Review of Driftwood Beach

Such raw, natural and untouched beauty is breathtaking. It amazes me that such beauty is so accessible. It's a place where you can wander and let the imagination go wild. There are two access points (plus walking north on the beach). They start out as one at the road, then divide - the one to the left (north) is paved and takes you thru a beautiful marshy area - and it's a long walk and its' great - lots of flora and fauna. Be mindful tho that as far as you walk on this nice hard path, if you're anticipating to walk the beach route (south), it's as long .. maybe longer back ... and may include a bit of clambering to get over some of the deadtrees (fun!). We did the paved walk and returned on the beach - I think we would have missed the access back to the path if not for some fellow walkers (they left their bikes at the path/beach point). That beach path that takes you back to the main path is not paved and gets you back on the on road within minutes. Know the tide times before you go capering about here - you wouldn't want to be there at high tide.

A must see if in the Jekyll Island area. Plan to spend at one hour or more strolling through all the driftwood. This is an amazzzing place. You will take more pictures than you can imagine.

This is a great place for taking pictures of the old oak trees that have been uprooted but the erosion from the sea. Never seen anything like it.

This beach is primative and unique with gorgeous driftwood formations and great views of bridge and lighthouse. It is not a swimming beach. My kids loved chasing all the crabs and different birds. Check tides before you go and plan on spending atleast an hour walking and taking pics. People were also riding horses and fishing but I am not sure where they rented from. There is a little gift shop on site with water, ice cream and souvenirs.
