Anastasia State Park
Anastasia State Park is a 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 looks for: sunbathing, surfing, swimming, fishing, sailboats, paddle boarding, and sailboarding. This beach boasts beautiful, white sandy beaches, a variety of birds, turtles, and other wildlife. Visitors can walk the nature trails that wind through the dunes shaded by maritime hammocks. 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 a St. Augustine vacation.
Visitors can also hike the coquina quarries located at the park entrance. An archaeological site from the 1700s 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. Campers can spend the night in the full-facility campground, with showers, bathrooms, and a store near the beach selling camping necessities. There are over 139 campsites to choose from, all located beneath trees and palms.
