Anastasia State Park
1,600 acre park with over four miles of pristine beach, tidal salt marshes and hammock preserves. Located just minutes from downtown St. Augustine, it has everything a beach-goer could possibly want: sunbathing, surfing, swimming, fishing, sailboats, paddle boarding, and sailboarding are just a few of the activities Anastasia State Park offers.
This beach boasts beautiful, white sandy beaches, a variety of wild birds, turtles, and other wildlife. Walk the nature trails that wind through the dunes shaded by hammock trees. Spectacular sunrises can be viewed from this spot, as well as the oldest city's inlet, where the Matanzas meets the Atlantic Ocean. Anastasia State Park is a great spot for a family beach day during your St. Augustine vacation.
You can also visit the coquina quarries located at the park entrance. An archaeological site from the 1700's when the Castillo de San Marcos was first built. This quarry site was continuously used until the turn of the century! This is a protected historic site and on the National Register of Historic Places. Spend the night in the full-facility campground, with showers and bathrooms. There are over 139 campsites to choose from, all located beneath hammock trees. Visit Anastasia State Park and find out why it is loved by locals and visitors alike!
Rated by Reserve America as # 6 of 100 parks in the U.S.
