Little Talbot Island State Park boasts five miles of beaches, thick with white sand. It has dunes, too, like those in the desert, always shifting with the whims of the wind. It’s a peaceful place, where you can hear yourself think, a place that otters, rabbits, bobcats and birds call home.
You can discover this undeveloped barrier island 17 miles northeast of Jacksonville, on State Road A1A—and give it some love, if you’re so inclined.
