The Bluffs is a perfect place for picnicking and pictures. While visiting, please adhere to the posted signs. As another option, visitors can reach the beaches of Big Talbot Island via Black Rock Trail or Big Pine Trail, both located on the east side of A1A.
Access to Big Talbot’s shore is easiest from the Shoreline Trail at the Bluffs access. The trail is located at the north end of the parking area and it is a quick 10-minute walk to the beach. This is a non-bathing beach, but you are welcome to wade out and cool off. For thousands of years driftwood has been washing up upon the shore of Big Talbot. This driftwood is a protected natural resource that offers not only scenic beauty, but is a source of shelter and food for the plants and animals that live in this habitat. Be sure to bring your camera, so you can take your memories home with you.
