St. Johns County Ocean Pier Park, located at 350 A1A Beach Blvd., St. Augustine, FL 32080, marks the northern tip of St. Augustine Beach. Here’s a map of beach access points. Click on each one to view its amenities.
Popular and active, historic St. Augustine Beach lures fishermen and sightseers with an iconic pier, while the melodic surf invites outdoor lovers to cool off with a salt-water baptism. Here, even the family dog can get in on the beach fun—as long as he stays on a leash.
The smooth, hard-packed sand is a cocoa color that sometimes shines with a cinnamon hue, providing an ideal surface for beach cruiser bike rides and strolls by the vast, sapphire Atlantic. Boulders protect the land surrounding the pier, but just past it you’ll find rolling dunes. Buildings are a maximum of 35 feet tall, so the scenery is easy on the eyes.
