6 Breathtaking Photos from Georgia's Driftwood Beach

Catch a sunset on the Georgia coast.

By: The Outbound Collective + Save to a List

No outdoor lover can come to Georgia and not explore Jekyll Island. And a trip to Jekyll Island isn't complete without a visit to Driftwood Beach. The beach is littered with huge, gnarly branches of driftwood (so that's where they get the name?!) and sunsets over the water are unbelievable. No matter what you have on tap for the day - hiking, running, photography, or just chillin' with your favorite people and a picnic basket - you can't go wrong here.
