What is there to say that hasn't already been said. Great beach to go to to avoid the masses. The long strip of sand and the ability to go as far as you want to enjoy peace and quiet and read or fish or surf. I even saw people riding bicycles on the packed sand up and down the beach.... More

Absolutely loved it here. Went to the South Pavilion (and beach) first. Had the place to ourselves. Everything was very clean, staff were all very friendly and helpful. One of the rangers was digging out a sea turtle nest and didn't mind answering a bunch of our questions. We also went to the North Pavilion and beach. Much busier but... More

Really nice park, nice beach, adequate parking and facilities. Went camping at the campground which was enjoyable as well. The park and the surrounding area is great for kayaking as well. We have been here several times and never had a bad experience!! It's gorgeous out there!!

The island was very beautiful. Quiet, serene. I enjoyed seeing the driftwood just planted in the sand unmovable - that was beautiful. There was not much activity the day we were visiting. It is a long walk to get to the shore from the parking lot. The park attendant was very helpful in telling us the direction to go for... More

This is a quiet, uncrowded beach. It costs $5 per car to enter. There is plenty of parking, clean restrooms, and outdoor showers.

Little Talbot is hands down my favorite part of the North Florida coastline. Everything about this beach is beautiful. The sand dunes are expansive and alive with wildlife. Sea Turtles seem to love nesting here, and you can see the nests marked off every few feet it seems right below the dunes. The beach itself is white and the water... More

Miles of soft sand, clean ocean water and plenty of room to spread out! There are very nice shelters with grills, bathouses and outdoor showers. The walkway to the beach winds it's way through the dunes and the whole experience is just lovely. This is truly a treasure!

Little Talbot has a wonderful walk through the woods along their dunes, an interesting habitat to challenge your photographic sensibility. It eventually ends for a return walk along the beach (except at highest tide). The beach also offers an impressive array of driftwood, a visual delight of it's own. There are also large parking lots to accommodate the longer beach... More

This is a must see place for outdoor enthusiasts. The river, and ocean come together around this small oak tree covered island for beautiful landscapes. Worth the trip out.

We live in Jacksonville and Little Talbot is the beach we love to visit. Entrance is $5 for a car full. There is nice parking and a lot of covered shelters for picnics. The only down side is the walk to the beach. There is a nice board walk path, but hauling all of your beach toys down to the... More
