Shell Hunting
Aug 2020 • Couples
This is the most beautiful beach!!! Great for shell hunting. I was told there are shark teeth but we were unable to find any, probably because we didn't know what to look for. The sound of the water rolling over the shells was magical.

Very pretty but not a good beach for swimming.
Jul 2020 • Family
This beach was very pretty to look at and has shallow water which is great for little one’s or someone who doesn’t like waves. This area however had very little parking, the water smelled like fish and wasn’t clear, I couldn’t walk without stepping on something sharp, and it wasn’t deep enough to swim.

Beautiful, quiet place to get some vitamin SEA!
Jul 2019 • Friends
Loved stopping here for a refreshing sit by the sea and enjoy the sun, salt, sand and fresh air! This place is quiet and we parked along the roadside by some houses and walked down a pathway to sit and enjoy the solitude.

Beautiful serene area

Lovely soft sand not heavily populated. See many fishing or just sunbathing. Lovely area with places to see and go to.

Great place to stop and spend some time on the beach, do some fishing and just walk around the inlet and then up the Atlantic coast. Lots to see, not too busy and good place to swim and get out of the wind of its breezy.

Family Beach Day (May 2017)
May 2018 • Family
Enjoyed this beach day with our family. It was an interesting beach, with the Atlantic on one side and the main recreation area at the internal mouth of the inlet. It was very shallow with lots of area to search for shells and play safely in the water.

We will return.

A perfect drive
Nov 2018 • Solo
I would love to make a suggestion that any person visiting Saint Augustine that wants a beautiful drive take old A1A down the coast stop here and at least go to Marineland!

Not My Favorite
Jul 2018 • Couples
The ocean side is gorgeous.the intracoastal side is also pretty but it gets crowded by noon on a nice weekend and parking is impossible to find by then. If you get there by 10 am you can easily find parking on most weekends and it’s FREE. I would still rather pay the money and go to Anastasia beach. Simply drive north and turn at the Oasis. You can drive on the beach there, though, I don’t know about their latest rules about 4x4 requirements. Anastasia is my favorite beach in North Florida.

The Storm

Been a while since Irma so very surprised to find out they haven't recovered from Matthew. The beach ramp at the inlet is destroyed, the ferry at the park still closed, very sad.
