Driftwood Beach

Jekyll Island’s beaches and beach restroom facilities will be closed to the public starting Saturday, March 21 at 6 a.m. until April 13, or until the Executive Order has been terminated or extended. Jekyll Island and its outdoor amenities remain open and accessible to the public. For more information, visit jekyllisland.com/covid-19.


Consistently voted one of America’s “Ten Most Romantic Beaches,” Driftwood Beach is an escape to another world. Ancient driftwood monuments line the waterfront, creating an unforgettable backdrop. Perhaps that’s one reason USA TODAY featured it as one of the best Southern beaches for a weekend escape.

This is a year-round pet-friendly beach, but we ask you please keep all pets under immediate control and on a leash no longer than 16′ at all times.
