It's one thing to go to Jacksonville beach with the crowds and kids. It's completely another thing to spend the day at Little Talbot. It's a piece of heaven. Beautiful white sand beaches. Very picturesque. The waves can be a bit tough some days so be cautious. There are hiking trails too! It's really very nice and worth a visit.

I love the beautiful simplicity and natural surroundings. If you want to get away from it ALL for a few hours and have peace and quiet, you can find it here.

White sand, 5 miles of white sand! Few people except us, and wildlife. Great, great day experience. Long walk across the dune bridges. Look at the flowers and butterflies. Take your trash out and use the very clean showers. Then barbecue and picnic at one of the pavilions.

This is an out of the way but well worth the trip travel destination located about halfway between metro Jacksonville and cozy Fernandina Beach. Travel north on Heckscher Drive out of Jacksonville and you'll find the entrance just over the bridge on the right. There is a small admission, as with most state parks, but will be money well spent... More

Gorgeous beach!! Found my first shark tooth on this beach. It's kinda out of the way, but worth it! We took a long walk north on the beach where there were dead skeleton trees on the beach. After the long walk we hopped in the ocean to cool off. I can't wait to come back to this beach.

I take my great niece there all the time. Beaches are well maintained. It has great facilities however it is a little walk from the parking to the actual beach. I have done some nice photography here as well. I also attended a on the beach wedding in 2002.

I took some out of town company and they were blown away by the beauty of the beach here....no homes or condos just water, the beach and a small boardwalk. It is a state park so it is not at all commercial. Beautiful beach and surf!!

If you crave a beautiful uncrowded beach, then Little Talbot Island is the place for you. It is a small park entrance fee, and has nice bath facilities with both inside and outside showers. There are several covered pavilions with grills available for rent (do not know if additional cost).

Scenic view . Would be a photographers dream. We went on a weekday and enjoyed a nice walk along the beach.
