Talbot Island and Fernandina Beach, Florida

Little Talbot Island

Like Edisto Beach and Skidaway Island, Little Talbot Island State Park is situated between a beautiful sandy beach and extensive salt marshes inland. The Island is about 6 miles long and the beach area is one of the few undeveloped beaches left in Florida. The scenery is not dramatic but the bird life is interesting and the beach unspoiled and serene. The park is known as one of the remaining habitats for the ‘Piping Plover’ which runs around at great speed (for a little bird) finding lots of food morsels in the shoreline. We also found a Red Hawk and two Egrets perched on top of dead trees as the sun came up searching for their next meal.

    Just 15 miles North of Talbot Island is the town of Fernandina Beach. The town has a lovely cute quotient, one of the oldest towns in Florida, which we enjoyed exploring. This was particularly fun after finding a bar that had $1.00 margaritas for sale during happy hour.
