Know Before You Go
Driftwood Beach is a short walk east from the big fishing pier on the north end of Jekyll Island, but you can see it from the pier. For the best views, be prepared to walk about a mile from the parking area. Feeling adventurous? Just past Villa’s By The Sea, there is a place you can pull off the road and follow the unmarked path down to the beach.You may also park on the road next to the beach. There is a short through the trees to arrive at the beach. Google Maps was more accurate than Apple Maps for finding the exact location of the beach.
