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.

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.

Jacksonville nature wonder. As tides and weather erode away bluffs leading edge trees fall prey to erosion and fall on to beach creating a boneyard effect. Main park has only one natural trail leading to beach but has a nice two mile bike path for...More

We only had one afternoon to spend at this park, but it was a lovely day and a very long beach offered the chance for a great walk picking up shells and sand dollars. Only a few people were around and it was just a...More
