Beach Activities

Florida Beach Activities

St. Augustine has over 20 miles of shoreline for relaxing and exploring. Our resort is located directly on St Augustine Beach, only 10 minutes from historic downtown St. Augustine. We’ve made it easy for you to enjoy the beautiful white sand as we are the only resort with direct access just a few steps outside our back door. Stop by the beach gazebo located behind the pool deck for rentals including umbrellas and chairs. We are also only a short walk away to St Johns’ County Pier where you can enjoy its playground, pavilion, fishing pier, volleyball courts, and more. St Augustine Beach is also pet friendly, so bring your 4-legged friend as long as she stays on a leash.
