Beach was not overly crowded. Not a huge variety of shells. Quiet and peaceful. Great facilities. Clean beaches. If you are a walker, plenty of space to walk.

Little Talbot Island is one of a series of coastal islands set aside as state parks. Be prepared to hike to reach the actual beach.

Nice scenery and good weather. But I DO NOT recommend taking dogs. In the hour since we’ve left we have pulled over 20 TICKS off of both our dogs! DO NOT recommend for dogs!!!

I went to this amazing beach on a cold day, but despite of that it´s a nice place to walk, look around for birds and photograpy oportunities. Will love that could be open at night for night photograpy

Visited this park on a colder day and there was barely anyone there. It made for a very nice visit. The beach is really cool and there were a lot of shells to check out.
