Big Talbot Island State Park
About Big Talbot Island State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
Come out and enjoy the pristine Big Talbot Island shoreline from the overlook at the Bluffs. From this comfortable vantage point, visitors can enjoy the weather and view the water-sculpted trees that line the shore. A quick 10-minute walk along the trail will give you access to the shoreline where you can walk among these once mighty oaks and pines that have fallen victim to nature's storms and erosion.
The Bluffs is a perfect place for picnicking and pictures. While visiting, please adhere to the posted signs. As another option, visitors can reach the beaches of Big Talbot Island via Black Rock Trail or Big Pine Trail, both located on the east side of A1A.
Big Talbot Island State Park is located 20 miles east of downtown Jacksonville on A1A North, immediately north of Little Talbot Island State Park.
