Little Talbot Island State Park is a beautiful piece of paradise. The air itself honestly fills your lungs and takes away your worries. The atmosphere, location and amenities is ideal for friends, couple and solo visitors. Bring sunscreen and bottled water!

My wife and I were visiting in Amelia Island and decided to look for a beach which was a little less traveled and to have the opportunity to do some shelling. This state park is well kept and has some of the most beautiful beaches in the area....plus shells!! Spent the afternoon there and would definitely go back.

We stopped here for the morning and didn't mind paying the $5 entry fee to the park. We stopped at one of the pavilion areas and took the long trek to the beach, which was not overcrowded and was very nice! Worth the visit!

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

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.
