Black Rock Beach located on Big Talbot Island is one of North Florida's most beautiful and unique beaches. From the road, you'd never guess that there is a hidden gem just a short walk away. The beach is located down a half mile shaded trail through hammock forests and coastal scrub. The beaches rare and picturesque geologic anomoly was created from geological soil formations that look like black lava rocks.
Parking at the trailhead is limited to just 15 cars at a time. If the parking lot is full (which it usually is during the weekends), there is additional parking at Boneyard Beach, located just a short drive up the coast.
We recommend packing plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray, beach gear, towels, cameras and $3 cash for parking. Dogs are also not allowed on the beach.
