Located on one of the sea islands unique to Northeast Florida, this park is primarily a
natural preserve
and a premier location for nature study, bird-watching and photography. The shoreline is unlike any 
other in Florida. Centuries of wind and water have eroded the island, creating the park’s famous
“boneyard beach” which is covered with the skeletons of live oak and cedar trees that once grew near the ocean. A boat ramp provides access for shing and touring the salt marshes. Visitors can
picnic on the bluff overlooking the water, then visit the beach to sunbathe or stroll along the shore.Hikers can walk along one of the park’s three trails and experience the diverse habitats preserved
here. Kayak Amelia/Long Island Outtters offers canoe/kayak rentals and guided paddle tours. Advance reservations for guided paddle tours are required—(888) 30-KAYAK (305-2925). Located20 miles northeast of downtown Jacksonville, on State Road A1A North, just north of Little
