“Shhh don't tell anyone”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Here is the secret.. Amelia Island State Park is OK. You can ride on the beach BUT you need a 4 wheel drive. BUT right across the bridge is Talbot Island. WOW !!! This is a maritime forest that is slowly plunging into the ocean and since the trees are cedar they "petrify" on the beach leaving a fantastic place for pictures and chilling out. WARNING: there is a path to get down to the beach from the parking lot but it is difficult to get back up once you are down if you are not nimble. So walk north (it is about 1/2 a mile) you can also park on the other side of the bridge and walk south. On the south end of the beach is ""tar like" caves. This is a nature product of the trees and not pollution. It is neat to walk on but VERY VERY slippery. Finally at low tide there is a disappearing island that boats park on and enjoy. This area is TOTALLY for kids. Mine love it.

“Could use some TLC...”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

Decided to come to the park with the three kids. A few points.... first, it's only two bucks a person to come in, but it's honor system and there is no change.
We enjoyed the walk on the beach, but picked up quite a bit of trash and debris along the way. This is not a place to bring kids to swim. This is a place to fish and perhaps go for a walk. When we looked at the demographics based on the cars in the lot, we knew we were out of place. We have a mini-van. Of the remaining 50 vehicles in the lot, all but a handfull were giant trucks! I'm sure the fishing is fine, but this is not a place to expect a relaxing swim with the kids.
