We know there’s tons of driftwood piled up on beaches in the Pacific North West, but Jekyll Island’s Driftwood Beach in Georgia is different, it’s a haunting boneyard of oak and pine trees uprooted by erosion, preserved by salt air and bleached by the sun. It’s a place for nature lovers, explorers, tree climbers, photographers, and it’s also a wedding destination! Photo via Villas by the Sea Resort.

Jekyll Island’s Driftwood beach is a popular Wedding Destination. It’s a fabulous setting indeed!
It’s also a destination to Celebrate an Engagement. And lots of families snap photos for holiday cards too.
And then there is the Jekyll Island Treasure Hunt during January and February each year. Glass floats, hand-crafted by artists, modeled after the original glass floats, are being placed on the beach to recreate the hunt for these treasures.
Driftwood beach is located on the north end of Jekyll Island, and there are multiple beach access points along North Beachview Drive. I’m no morning person, but I’d make an exception for this beach. The Sunrise looks spectacular!
Other driftwood beaches with a sizable amount of tree boneyards are located on Bull’s Island and Edisto Island (at Botany Bay Plantation) in South Carolina, and on Big Talbot Island, FL, just north of Jacksonville.
