Driftwood Beach

  • South of North Loop Trail on N. Beachview Drive
  • Jekyll Island, GA 31527

Located on the north end of Jekyll Island, Driftwood Beach will amaze you with the beautiful driftwood and trees that resemble a scene from another world. These gnarled and weathered trees are left behind from years of erosion. Driftwood Beach offers a wonderful location for photographs and is a very popular site for weddings.

Driftwood Beach extends from the Clam Creek Picnic Area to the Villas By The Sea Resort and Conference Center, and is only a short walk away from the Jekyll Island Campground. From Clam Creek Picnic Area, simply follow signs for the Wildlife Viewing Area and take the paved walkway toward Clam Creek. Walk over the bridge and you will see two beach access points toward the left. 

Multiple beach access points along North Beachview Drive also provide access to Driftwood Beach. Designated parking areas are located along the road, next to each beach access point. Learn more about Driftwood Beach.
