Shady picnic tables, bring bikes because there is a 5 or more miles of bicycle path away from the road. There are also bathrooms and the beach is clean and serene. It is also near a kajack rental if you would like to do that....More

This is one of the prettiest spots along the NE Florida coast. No development - great ocean and marsh views. Saw two roseate spoonbills in the marsh.
