If you love taking photos of driftwood, this is certainly the place for you. When we were there you could still see evidence of Hurricane Irma and all the horrible erosion it caused to Boneyard Beach. The driftwood is so beautiful. The park offers 3...More

Definitely recommend visiting. I took my sister who was visiting from up north and we had a great relaxing time walking the beach. The driftwood is amazing. Great pictures. Recommend going to Little Talbot island south beach during low tide.

Passed the entrance the first time. Parked and walked a short trail to get down to the actual beach. We were there late in the day and was not crowded at all. The water wasn't pretty, but that wasn't what we came for. We probably...More

If you are in the area I insist you go. You can make it an all day trip or just pop in for 30 min. A beautiful beach that is as enchanting as the pictures make it look.

My kids really enjoyed climbing the trees. Nice walk. Not many people there. Saw a gopher tortillas on the trail. No pets allowed on beach.

I visited Boneyard Beach around 6:30pm and found not that many people were there. It was a short walk through from the entrance, along a trail, and down to the beach. No need to climb down anywhere, as some reviews describe. The beach itself was...More

Short walk from The public parking and worth it. The photos we took at sunset are absolutely amazing. This is worth the trip!

We thought the boneyard beach was absolutely beautiful. There were not many people there when we went so it was a wonderful quiet stroll on the beach. The trees made for awesome photos and backdrops. Really is a sight to see and highly recommended.
