Very quiet place, beautiful sand and relaxing

Didn't know what to expect when we added it as a destination to our Florida trip, but have to admit it is a very nice beach, especially for a family with young kids

Several of the homes and buildings are worth driving or walking by to see. The Nassau County Courthouse and Post Office, both downtown, are beautiful. The beach is clean and miles long. Walking on it at sunrise is awe-inspiring. One of our favorite and first places to stop for a good seafood meal is Cedar River on Sadler Rd. The... More

Great beach! Reminds me of the warm caribbean waters with the white sands. My husband is from the Caribbean islands and he was really impressed with this beach. The Sandy bottom bar and grill located on the beach made this experience a plus, had good food and great service. We had a great time, relaxing atmosphere. We will be returning... More

We enjoyed our B&B (The Hoyt House), the pristine beaches, the many delicious restaurants, the state park, the art galleries, the shops, an interesting boat ride that included seeing dolphins, wild horses, and wild turkeys. Very fun!!

Beautiful beach. Lot's of jelly fish, which kept us out of the water for the most part. Great visit and a lot of fun.

This island is among the best destinations in Florida. A genuine bit of the old Florida, with a fascinating history that dates back before the French first came in the 17th century. There are beautiful beaches and riverways to explore by kayak or motor boat, and a 19th century brick fort. The old part of town is charming and unpretentious,... More
