What an incredible beach! Trees in various states of drying, dying and decaying are scattered about the sand and water. During low tide the trees are on the sand but once the tide rises many of the trees end up in the water. A must...More

Driftwood beach is an amazing place to take photos. The views are beautiful and the driftwood is the perfect background for family photos or engagement photographs.

You will not be disappointed when you go to Driftwood Beach. It feels like the quietest place on earth for some reason. Also a great place to watch fireworks on July 4.

Great beach, beautiful sand and water. A great walking and relaxing beach. Only thing I wish I had with me was a hammock to string between the trees.

The piles of driftwood after Hurricane Irma were amazing! A real tangle. The beach is in a contained area, so don't expect to see a long stretch. The power of nature was very evident. Look forward to seeing how nature has rearranged this beach each...More

There are two areas for parking right by the pathways that lead to the beach. We went during Spring Break and had no issues finding a spot.
