Little Talbot Island State Park, Jacksonville Reviews
A beautiful, scenic beach with sugar sand, lovely shells and sand dollars. Well maintained. Plenty of covered picnic area with grills for cooking those hot dogs! Restroom facilities were also well maintained. Hikers will love a trek through the coastal forest. Bring your camera and don't forget the bug spray - the mosquitoes are the size of pterodactyls! The park fee is $5 per vehicle. FYI - a visit to Big Talbot Island to see the driftwood is a separate fee, but worth it for photographers.
The sand is super fine like baby powder. The facilities are excellent. They even gave us a shell and shark tooth guide when we paid for entry. There is a gradual incline on the shore so lidsyhave a nice large shallow area to play. The beach itself is clean and well kept. The water is brown in color, unlike the turquoise waters around some other beaches, but I suspect it's because the sand is dark and very fine in texture. I enjoyed this beach a lot, though. It was very tranquil and relaxing as a beach should be.
Worth the small $5 fee for hours of fun. There are hiking trails and biking trails with many areas to explore. The beach is NEVER overcrowded!! The shower and bathroom areas are ALWAYS clean and don't reek of piss like other places. The drive is a little long but it's always worth it for the guaranteed fun!
Excellent beach and bathrooms! State Parks officers are really nice folks. I didn't know I could renew my Parks pass there, but you can, which was helpful. Campground across the road it great but phone signal is a little weak on that side- it makes up for it by having good power on site and really clean restrooms. Also pretty good fishing.
Excellent family oriented state park on the Atlantic ocean featuring public beach with three parking areas with outdoor showers and public restrooms. Good access to the beach with boardwalks and picnic tables and barbecue pits in some areas. Campgrounds are available across A1A which are part of the overall state park. Many recreational activities here.
