Little Talbot Island State Park, Fernandina Beach, Florida
12157 Heckscher Drive, Fernandina Beach, Florida 32226| Map |
Little Talbot Island is one of the last remaining undeveloped barrier islands in Northeast Florida. Because of its Maritime forests, desert-like dunes and undisturbed salt marshes, the island allows for hours upon hours of nature study. Not only can one study nature, but wildlife as well. The Island is home to many animals including river otters, marsh rabbits, bobcats and a variety of native and migratory birds. Visitors can explore the great outdoors by fishing, surfing, picnicking or staying a night at the full-service campground located along the eastern salt marshes of Myrtle Creek. If a family is up for adventure, they can rent a kayak on Little Talbot Island and explore the shores.
