Definitely recommend visiting. I took my sister who was visiting from up north and we had a great relaxing time walking the beach. The driftwood is amazing. Great pictures. Recommend going to Little Talbot island south beach during low tide.

If you are in the area I insist you go. You can make it an all day trip or just pop in for 30 min. A beautiful beach that is as enchanting as the pictures make it look.

My kids really enjoyed climbing the trees. Nice walk. Not many people there. Saw a gopher tortillas on the trail. No pets allowed on beach.

Short walk from The public parking and worth it. The photos we took at sunset are absolutely amazing. This is worth the trip!

We thought the boneyard beach was absolutely beautiful. There were not many people there when we went so it was a wonderful quiet stroll on the beach. The trees made for awesome photos and backdrops. Really is a sight to see and highly recommended.

Jacksonville nature wonder. As tides and weather erode away bluffs leading edge trees fall prey to erosion and fall on to beach creating a boneyard effect. Main park has only one natural trail leading to beach but has a nice two mile bike path for...More
