I disagree with an earlier reviewer, who was apparently at Amelia Island State Park the same weekend we were.
We were in a 4x4, and we explored all sections of the park until we found the white sand area, with waves - you have to drive past the protected, waveless inlet where the brown sand is to get there. Almost everyone we saw was fishing but we went to swim and had a great time. The sand and waves were not as perfect as Huguenot (where we went the next day), but the lack of crowds during Labor Day weekend more than made up for it!
If you don't have a 4x4 (a good one! That white sand was tricky even for some of the truck drivers!), I'd say skip this beach because you'll have to walk a very long way, or you'll miss the pretty side of the peninsula.
If you're looking to people-watch, this isn't the place for you. But if you're looking for a (4x4) driveable, uncrowded, low-key beach that offers mostly just sun and sand to play or fish, this place is near perfect.
