On of the last beaches in Florida you can still drive up to the surf and enjoy the water. Right in the City of Jacksonville. Great for sunrise breakfast and a little surf fishing

Not a lot of people. the first beach is the best beach. Good shelling. Kind of a neat view if you keep driving to the end and then its a good walk to the beach there

I love stopping on Talbot Island state park. It's a very inexpensive way to spend your free time. I love exploring the coast line and watching the birds. The parks are all very clean and safe.

We spent half the day on this beautiful beach. You wont see but a handful of people coming and going. This was very different from Jacksonville Beaches. They had crowds everywhere. This beach become your own little hide away. Equipped with bathrooms and changing rooms. Also covered picnic areas. You will want to bring a bag of some kind as... More

I was so happy to see a natural beach setting with out many people, lovely! If you drive down past the main parking area you will find several picnic areas and wide open unspoiled beaches and nature at it's finest. I went on a week day and it was quiet, peaceful and there were plenty of sea shells to collect.... More

Very few people on the beach on a Saturday morning in November. We sadly didn't see any turtles, but we did spy lots of horseshoe crabs. And there were so many incredible shells and dried starfish. The kids enjoyed walking along the water's edge and even venturing to a close sandbar on the South beach. Highly recommend a trip to... More

I went on a cold, windy day, so there weren't that many people nor were mosquitoes a problem. The main boardwalk to the beach is closed for remodeling, but there is another quite close that comes up by the bathrooms/changing area. The beach is nice and smooth with lots of photo opportunities with all the driftwood. I am told that... More

Pristine, expansive, and hardly any tourists. We were really impressed. You should not swim because of strong currents, but walking along the surf was great. Our favourite beach of our trip through Florida!
