Picnicking on Big Talbot Island

Visit The Bluffs and enjoy a picnic at one of the pavilions overlooking the water or take a quick stroll down the trail to Boneyard Beach. The unique beach is famous for the salt washed skeletons of live oak and cedar trees that once grew near the shore.

Come out and enjoy the pristine Big Talbot Island shoreline from the overlook at the Bluffs. From this comfortable vantage, visitors can enjoy the weather and view the water-sculpted trees that line the shore. A quick 10-minute walk along the trail will give you access to the shoreline where you can walk among these once mighty oaks and pines that have fallen victim to nature's storms and erosion.

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.

The panoramic view of Nassau Sound as it opens to meet the Atlantic Ocean makes Big Talbot's Bluffs a perfect setting for a picnic. The Bluffs picnic area is located on the east side of S.R. A1A. This picnic area has a $2.00 entrance fee per vehicle and offers park visitors picnic pavilions with grills and tables along with a gorgeous view of Nassau Sound.
