TripAdvisor named Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island as the No. 8 best beach in the United States for this year’s Travelers’ Choice Awards.

“Driftwood Beach is a picture-perfect beach with — you guessed it — beautiful, weathered driftwood dotting its long, sandy shore. Quiet and peaceful, it’s a great spot to relax and catch the sunset. Bonus: It’s pet-friendly, and parking’s a breeze,” TripAdvisor says.

Driftwood Beach sits on the north end of the coastal Georgia island. What’s unique about this stretch of beach are the driftwood and trees, left by years of erosion, that dot the landscape.

It’s a popular spot for amateur photographers and also weddings.


How are the Travelers Choice Awards decided? The travel website analyzed a high volume of “above-and-beyond” reviews from Tripadvisor users within the past year.
