Outdoor Activities All Year Long

Although spring and summer draw the most visitors to St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches, there are great outdoor opportunities throughout the year.

Birders flock here during the autumn months as everything from songbirds to birds of prey make their way south along their coastal migration routes in search of warmer haunts for the winter.

June, July and August offer some of the region's best fishing, most notably surf casting during evening hours. The water temperature is ideal, drawing swimmers to the beach, while surfers will find the summer provides some of the year's best waves as tropical storms roll up the coast.

And the spring brings new blooms. Botanical enthusiasts can join their birding brethren in counting different species as wildflowers and other plants bloom after their long winter hiatus.
