Little Talbot Island Jacksonville FL
On the way to Washington DC, the fourth stop on our Roadtrippers itinerary was this gorgeous state park on Little Talbot Island Jacksonville Fl. We drove along a pretty long road inside the park before parking at an empty parking lot.
We took somewhat of a nature trail type path from the parking lot out to this beautiful white sand beach on Florida’s east coast. We did see some wicked looking spiders along the way in the brush, but they leave you alone as long as you leave them alone.
This wasn’t a beach trip so we didn’t plan a “spend a day at the beach” sort of stop for this one. We just wanted one more chance to stretch our legs and see something new on our way to DC. We did walk out to the water and watch passing ships and a military helicopter fly overhead.
My son walked out into the water just enough to get his hands wet. I looked but didn’t really see a lot of sea shells or anything. It was a very clean and quiet beach. We walked along the beach for a few minutes before hitting the road again.

About Little Talbot Island Jacksonville FL
Little Talbot Island State Park is located at 12157 Heckscher Drive in Jacksonville, Florida. The park is open from 8am to sunset and costs only $5 per vehicle for an all day pass.
There are concrete parking lots and restroom facilities within the park as well as picnic areas and nature trails.
The park features ancient dunes, pristine beaches, and a secluded barrier island for you to spend a day exploring. This could easily be a nice day trip if you live with a few hours of Jacksonville. You could totally plan a day at the beach and just explore some of Florida’s prettiest natural features.
There is a lot to see at this little beach. You can certainly pick a spot in the sand to sun bathe and play in the water. But you definitely want to spend some time exploring as well. Check out the dunes and the barrier island. Take some pictures and make lasting memories.
I don’t regret stopping here, not even for a second. In fact, I intend to plan a day trip to come back and explore the entire park. That is my only regret, that we didn’t make time to go exploring.
Since this was my first time using the Roadtrippers app, I was still learning how to plan trips and hadn’t yet figured out how to plan our time. I’ve mastered it now and will work this stop into a future trip for sure.
I’d highly recommend this stop. Have you been there? I’d love to hear what you thought of it. Please drop a few lines in the comments box below and let me know how your visit went.
In the meantime, safe travels!
