Very quiet beach large flat easy to walk for miles. There were outdoor showers to rinse off salt and sand. Indoor change rooms. We saw birds and sea turtles. Nice waves can be strong though. $5.00 per car to enter park.

This is our favorite park and beach in the area. We biked about two and a half miles down to the south beach area, then took the boardwalk out onto the beach and biked a little more. We stopped in an area that felt like we had our own private beach. No swimming in the south beach area, but it... More

If you don't mind a little walk down the wooden walk way ( be sure you have your flips own, it gets very hot in the summer) and you like your privacy, this is the beach for you. This beach is only good for walking, relaxing, sun bathing or enjoying the tide pools, as the under tow is historically dangerous... More

Enjoyed our day at little talbot island. We only used the north beach since south beach was closed for bird nesting. It was not crowded at all but it was a weekday. I took a scenic walk and felt almost like I was on a deserted island - no people. The plentiful driftwood trees were interesting to look at and... More

A beautiful park with friendly park rangers who will gladly provide information to get to trails and the beach. The park has an Old Florida feel and during the week the beach is very quiet. Do NOT swim on this beach. Very dangerous currents are everywhere. If you're a swimmer please go elsewhere! From Jacksonville take the Mayport Ferry for... More

My extended family lives in Jacksonville, and we most often go to the beach just to the west of the city. But when we have time, we take the extra effort to get to Little Talbot Island. This is one of the many off-shore islands which are part of the inland waterway extending from the tip of Florida to Virginia.... More

I stumbled upon this area while out just exploring while on vacation the second week of July. The beach area offers so much. I love places that are peaceful and relaxing. The beach was pristine with natural shells. It has Gorgeous views of the ocean with lots of marine and wildlife. I truly felt at peace here. The water here... More
