We visited with family at the Egan Overlook and enjoyed the wildlife there. A bald eagle was spotted. We had plenty of seating in a shaded area to visit and bird watch.

Been going here since moving to Fernandina Beach 10 months ago. Never too crowded and always find many sharks teeth, usually small - over 600 now. Went for a picnic this week which was nice as well.
