A small entry fee but once you walk to the shore line it will be all that you expected and more. Name your beach activity and you can do it all here. No animals on the beach like the city parks allow. Just pure nature at its best. Bring the binoculars to watch ships coming and going. Dolphins playing just... More

This is by far my favorite beach in the States. Miles and miles of beach with no hotels or commercial buildings. Clean and quiet with driftwood and sea shells. We love it here! It's a walk so we did invest in a rolling cooler last year but it truly is a must see. The campground is amazing with lots of... More

Rustic, low key, maritime forest. Heaven for birders and those who like uncrowded places right on the shore

This award winning State Park is one of the best in Florida if not the Nation. Miles of unspoiled beach combined with twisting natural waterways for kayaking/canoeing make this a water lovers paradise. Wooded campsites, hiking trails, clean showers and toilets, amazing fishing, and "secret spot" surfing are some of the best features. The staff here are proud of their... More

This is a wonderful state park. Over the weekend, we hiked the 3.8 mile loop. It starts out wooded, but ends up on the beach. The trail is kept up very well and is quite beautiful. I can't wait to go back!

This is a small Florida state park but has an excellent campground that borders a marsh and a quiet unspoiled beach with lots of shells. It is close enough to Jacksonville for access but very natural. There are not any restaurants close by but that adds to the peacefulness of this park. Campsites range from marsh front to wooded. Very... More

When I think about beaches, I think of bikinis, cocktails, swimming and parties. But...this beach at Little Talbot is not about that! It is about quietness, tranquility, inner peace...and I love it! In the beginning we didn't expect too much, but after the short trail inside the woods, all of a sudden, this sandy beach appeared! So clean, so original...it... More

This is mine and my husbands favorite beach!!! We walk or ride our bikes all up and down the island, in awe of the wonderful sea life we see!!! Sand dollars, starfish, horseshoe crabs, the washed up trees, even a shark!!! Late summer walks or bike rides are the best!!!! There are bathrooms, vending machines, showers, plenty of parking on...
