Talbot Island has several spots to park with beach access. I like Boneyard Beach that at low tide is covered with fallen trees--great for photos. Check a guide to the area. Certain spots are better for swimming, kayaking or walking.

Sightseeing
The north and south bank both have long walks along the river that make for nice sightseeing and exercise. Good for joggers and bikers too. You can walk across the Main Street or Acosta Bridge to get to the North bank or take a River Taxi and get out on the water for better views. Watch for dolphins! Go to http://www.mapmyrun.com/us/jacksonville-fl/ for two great nearby places to run: numbers one and ten are very close to the bungalow.
