About this spot
Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island, located in the state of Georgia, USA, is known for its striking landscape filled with numerous weathered and sun-bleached driftwood trees. These trees, primarily oaks and pines, have been uprooted and smoothed over time by the elements, creating a unique and somewhat haunting appearance. The beach has become a popular spot for photography, weddings, and serene walks, especially at sunrise or sunset when the light adds to the surreal beauty of the scene.

The beach's distinctive look is a result of the island's ongoing erosion, which has caused these trees to become exposed and eventually fall onto the beach. This natural process has turned the area into a kind of tree graveyard, but one with a certain mystical and beautiful quality.
