Spent the afternoon yesterday kayaking the salt key at Anastasia Island......low tide so little boat activity. Takes 2 hours to the lighthouse and back......beautiful views, birding, one baby loggerhead turtle; the sun was shining and the mullets were jumping! Gorgeous way to relax and enjoy the park from a different approach. No bugs but don't forget the sunscreen and a... More

When we made reservations, I really expected a crowded beach with tightly packet blankets and umbrellas, next to some redneck blaring his taste in music and chain smoking. I found the opposite: a wide, spacious beach with friendly people and enough room that you felt like you had the entire place to yourself. I would suggest getting one of the... More

I would agree with the other reviewers that the beach is beautiful. But it now 12:45 am and my camping neighbors, who are no more than 20 ft from me are wide awake and all have halogen lights. And don't speak English or have rvs. If u like a party or non English speakers whose kids are still screamining at... More

I almost don't want to write this review, because I'm a Floridian and really enjoyed this beach, and I don't want it to become too popular! Luckily it is a state park, and is well worth the small entrance fee. Anastasia island is nestled between Vilano and St Augustine beaches and offers a rare long coastline unspoiled by condos and...

I found many things to do without crowds and high rises on the beach It is close to St. Augustine, the oldest town in America (1650.) I enjoyed walking up the steps to the top of the lighthouse, with it's great view!

Anastasia Island in St. Augustine has the most beautiful beach with clean white sand. High rise hotels and condos are not to be found on this Florida beach as they are on so many other Florida beaches. Even when many people are on the beach, it doesn't appear crowded. Cars are also allowed limited access to the beach.Beyond the beach... More

This is a state park. Stay in an RV or pitch a tent. Bathroom facilities are great and the camp group easy to get around. Friendly Rangers and Volunteer Staff. Take a walk or drive over to the beach at night and walk in the surf by moonlight or walk out on one of the wooden walk ways, sit back... More
