A fun thing to to while visiting. Very quiet and unique driftwood to view. Go in the morning or afternoon unless you have mosquito repellent.

The huge pieces of driftwood create an eery picture that was perfect as the backdrop for some scenes from "Thr Walking Dead." Definitely a completely different view than can be had anywhere else on the island.

This may be the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. Easy to walk to. Peaceful & tranquil come to mind when walking here.

Very interesting place and great for anyone into photography. Also good for beachcombing. A little off the beaten path and not necessarily 'marked' signage though it is shown on a map of the area. Dog friendly

Went for an evening walk & was quite impressive. The sun was setting & temperatures were nice. The area isn't marked & had to find the path. Put we just followed the parked cars. Definitely worth the stop.

We've been coming to Jekyll Island for 20 years. This is one of our favorite areas to walk and take pictures. Watching the changes ( especially post- hurricane Matty) has to remind you of the omnipotence of the ocean.

The beach is located on Jekyll island so you firstly need to pay the $6 vehicle entry fee to enter the island. Once you go through the entrance toll, all the attractions/ sites are quite easily signposted. You definitely... More

You would have to walk through a wooded area in sand. I would have someone walk the path first to see how soft it is. The beach itself is hard. Depending on how you maneuver through the driftwood you could see quite a bit of... More

I doubt it. This is a state park and it is protected but ask at the gate entrance. I know there are signs that you cannot take away any driftwood.
