St. Augustine & Ponte Vedra Beach

Nature is as much a part of our makeup as history. With miles of water and currents flowing in every direction, the St. Augustine outdoors make for one of the most kayak-friendly places in the U.S. Discover unique wildlife, flora and fauna along our beaches and parks - don't miss the resort-style Ponte Vedra Beach. And for fishing, the area can’t be beat. We’ve got saltwater and freshwater, inland and deep-sea. Take a fishing charter or fish from a pier; just be sure to get a license first.
