Loved every inch of it. We walked the beach for a long distance and intended to do the trails, but loved the beach too much. One of the best unusual beaches we have ever seen.

Beautiful and photogenic but there can be (depending on time of year) LOTS of nasty, biting bugs! Pack your bug spray!

Walking the beach amongst the large driftwood was a wonderful experience. This beach was like a jungle gym for my boys and a romantic getaway for my wife and I.

You have to see it in person to understand it's natural beauty. Had a blast with the kids walked along the beach shelling, then played frisbee for hours, then took some photos on the driftwood. Love it wish I was there now!

My wife and I expected a decent meal, but were overwhelmed by the quality of the food, it's variety, and the friendly, courteous service of its employees. Decorations were appropriate and gave you a feeling of home. Highly recommended!

We stopped by while riding bikes. It appeared to be flat, soft sanded with these trees and trunks protruding from the ground. Pretty cool to see. Would have like to spend more time at this beach

It was a cool, windy, winter day and we walked this beach through all the driftwood trees. It's so strange and so gorgeous. I've never seen anything like it. If you like trees, it seems a little sad, but it's so unique too. Take your...More

Pictures dont do this beach justice. The windswept trees, the remains of old cement picnic tables and old pipes jutting from the sand mixed with thr sand and rocks makes for an interesting walk along this beach

I apologize for the too long delay in my reply. The beach is on the north end of the island with an east facing....so I was seriously wrong about setting sun. It's rising.

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
