Boneyard Beach…Cool! No Bones About It!

January 7th, 2013 by David Jones

The area around Amelia Island is just brimming with natural wonders!  Take Boneyard Beach, for example.  Don’t let the name scare you – it’s not full of bones – just salt-washed skeletons of live oak and cedar trees that have fallen onto the beach due to beach erosion.  They remain there until the tide takes them out or they become fully eroded.  What you have is a fascinating display of super-large driftwood and a photographer’s dream!  Boneyard Beach is located at the northern most tip of Big Talbot Island, about a 20 minute drive from Amelia Island and a perfect place for a picnic lunch.  There are many cool trails to explore there that provide diverse habitats for bird-watching and nature study.  After exploring on foot consider launching a boat from the north end of the island to fish and tour the salt marshes.  Or consider renting a kayak and taking a guided tour with Kayak Amelia (888) 30-KAYAK.  Kayak tours require advanced reservations.
