Love Beach

The picnic Area is great and the beach is very clean. I take friends and family many times. Drive on the beach and life guards on duty.

This was our first trip to this area of the east coast. I am a native Floridian and spent most of my beach-going life further down the coast at beaches from St Augustine to Daytona. This was a nice beach with a lot of the "old Florida fell" that many of the above mentioned are lacking. We will be back... More

I'm almost scared to say it ...? But this is BY FAR the best beach EVER! In this Jax area anyway...! Hoping that the $5 entry fee will keep away the hoards of beach goers ! The bath house was awesome & clean... The walk across the dunes was super easy since it is such a nice decking path... And... More

Have you ever wanted to get away from it all but not have to drive hours to get there? Little Talbot Island is a perfect place to do that. It feels you are far from the big city life of Jacksonville while letting you get To nature. Great facilities and trail system.

Spent 2 nights there at the end of July. Did some kayaking and spent the afternoons at the beach. The creek goes dry at low tide so plan your kayak trip accordingly. The beach is good, plenty of parking in several lots. The campsites are smaller but are mostly shaded. The bathhouses could use some work, they DO NOT have... More

On the other side of A1A is a beutiful, uncrowded beach....miles of beautiful sand and long rolling waves. The walk to the beach is 1/4 mile from the campground but seems longer....but... More
