Little Talbot Island State Park
In order to enhance public safety at our park, public use areas at the south end of Little Talbot Island are now restricted to dry shoreline access. Strong currents occur at the south tip of the island where the river meets the ocean, making water entry dangerous. While parking areas will remain open at this time, NO water entry and NO swimming will be allowed from the South End parking lots. Visitors can still access the beach using boardwalk #4 for fishing, walking and biking.
Welcome to Little Talbot State Park
Exploring Little Talbot Island’s undeveloped beach is a unique Florida experience.
Little Talbot Island is one of a handful of undeveloped barrier islands remaining in Northeast Florida. Boasting more than five miles of pristine beaches and three miles of bike trails, Little Talbot’s untouched natural beauty and diverse ecosystems beg to be explored. There is, of course, the white sand and rolling surf typical of many high energy coasts. But there is also the eroding sun-bleached roots and fallen trunks of cedar and palm that create a linear tapestry of natural sculptures.
Enjoy beachcombing, surfing, fishing, hiking, birdwatching, a winding kayak journey along the bluffs of Myrtle Creek and camping in a lush forest hammock. There is something for every outdoor lover on Little Talbot Island.
