St. Augustine Beach, St. Augustine, Florida

St. Augustine Beach, Florida

Bustling St. Augustine Beach is just one of many beaches that make up the 42-miles of Atlantic beachfront in the St. Augustine area. But this bustling beach has everything you need for the perfect beach vacation. Accommodations are plentiful, restaurants are plentiful, and the fishing pier, pavilion, splash pad, and sand volleyball at the beachfront park make this the ideal spot to spend a week.

If that's not enough to keep you busy, grab a kayak, or kiteboard and take to the waves. Keep an eye out for dolphins playing in the surf and Northern right whales, who come to the area to give birth each winter.

If you get burned out (or just plain sunburned) on the beach, there's plenty of other activities in the area from the Haunted Trolley Tour of St. Augustine to the Potter's Wax Museum .

HOW TO GET THERE

  • Fly into Florida's Jacksonville Airport (JAX) and rent a car. It's about a one hour drive to St. Augustine.

WHERE TO STAY

DON'T FORGET

  • Golf clubs — if that's your thing! The St. Augustine Beach area is home to numerous courses and the nearby World Golf Hall of Fame. While you're visiting the Hall of Fame, grab a bite at the Murray Bros. Caddyshack Restaurant.
