Florida isn’t the only place offering the best beach experience. It’s neighboring state Georgia also has beautiful beaches spread across the region, too.
Bordered to the southeast by the Atlantic Ocean, expect the numerous options of seaside restaurants and cafés, resorts and hotels as well as parks and other facilities which come with the amazing sandy beaches.
Driftwood Beach, Jekyll Island
Located on the northern end of Jekyll Island, Driftwood Beach extends from Clam Creek Picnic Area to the Villas by the Sea Resort and Conference Center. Once you arrived at the beach, you’ll be amazed by the ethereal view of the beautiful driftwood and trees right away.
Such an iconic view is a result of decades of erosion. The sandy beach lined with crumbling tree trunks and branches used to be a maritime forest in the past. That way, Driftwood Beach makes an amazing location for picnics.
Even if it is not for swimming, you can always enjoy the scenic panorama of the beach. Go to Driftwood Distro and experience the dining experience of the best restaurant in Jekyll Island—the fried okra and fried green tomatoes, as well as cheese grits, are totally worth it!
They also serve wines and cocktails, so make sure to order some for the perfect stargazing! There’s plenty of seaside cottages available near the beach to spend the night such as Crowes Nest cottage, Newmans Beachview Home, Holiday Inn Resort Jekyll Island, you name it.
