We drove in and out onto the sand to the other end of the beach. It was low tide but really beautiful. Driving out on the beach is the best part of this! There were trucks backed up, families with their children and the nice thing was they put the tail gate down on the truck and they could leave... More

A beautiful place, even in the depth of winter. It was windy at times and you felt sand blasted if you stood in the breeze too long. But the beaches are stunning. A great place for a romantic evening stroll.

This is a no frills state park. Appeared to be a great fishing spot, had beautiful scenery but that was about it. If you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle you could probably have fun driving through the dune area, otherwise it is a very long walk to get to the beach area. It is not safe to swim in... More

You do have to pay to enter the park. Four Wheeled trucks and SUVs are allowed on the beach. There were plenty of people fishing. It had nice sandy white beaches. Not the crushed up shell beaches. Nice place to visit.

The state park is a bare bones park with one portable potty for restrooms and nothing else. The park is better suited for people wanting to fish or kayak. The beach was not a good beach to walk on.

An undeveloped stretch of beach, looks quite different without the coconut palms which are not native. The sand is quite brown, washed up trees, and trash. No dogs allowed, but a good place to picnic; remember to bring spray for the sand flees. It's free state park fees $2. per person. But you can give $5. fee, to the Amelia... More

We spent an hour here so we could walk along an undeveloped stretch of natural beach. We observed and took photos of different types of shorebirds, the shell-strewn beach, and wash-up jellyfish. Even though there were other people, most of them were fishing along the Nassau Sound, so we have the beach to ourselves. It was beautiful and serene. There's... More

We had just come from Fernandina Beach so we stopped off here and paid the $2 per person entry. Unfortunately we could not walk out dog on the beach so I strolled solo and picked up some nice shells.Worth the detour even if you are beached out.

We stopped here on our way to St. Augustine from Savannah. It was worth the small detour. It is a very quaint area. The beaches are beautiful. We went to Fernandina beach. The sand was wonderful.
