One of the most photogenic spots in Florida is the rustic shoreline of Little Talbot Island. Located between Amelia Island and Jacksonville’s Atlantic Beach, this 2500-acre paradise has some of the most impressive maritime forests in the state. Time seems to have forgotten about this romantic, secluded place. It is one of the last remaining undeveloped barrier islands in Northeast Florida. Over the years, erosion has slowly chipped away at the dunes producing “cliffs” that lead to five miles of pristine white beaches. Along the water is a photographer’s dream. The beach is strewn with giant pieces of driftwood and fallen trees, creating a surreal and haunting effect. River otters, bobcats, marsh rabbits and a variety of native and migratory birds call this place home. For the more adventurous, kayak rentals and guided paddle tours are available from Kayak Amelia. Little Talbot Island State Park is open 365 days a year and is one of the most peaceful beaches you’ll ever visit.
