Big Talbot Island

Picturesque Big Talbot Island State Park is adjacent to spectacular Nassau Sound, just the place for quiet contemplation in a majestic setting. It's also a great place for picture-taking. Be sure to visit the fallen trees on the beach where erosion has uprooted them; it's an experience unlike any other. There's also a boat ramp, picnicking facilities and five hiking trails which wind throughout the grounds, taking hikers on an intimate journey into one of the country's most prized and well-protected natural parks.
