Enjoy St. Augustine While Social Distancing

Amy

St. Augustine and the Historic Coast offers many miles of gorgeous beaches and that is a great way to enjoy your stay while staying safe. However, we offer many other ways to enjoy our beautiful town from state parks, nature reserves, tidal marshes, bird watching, hiking, to boating that you can enjoy in the great outdoors.

1. Kayaking is a peaceful way to enjoy the area. With miles of coastline, salt marshes, wetlands, and marine hammocks, you can experience nature in a much different manner than in a power boat. A quiet kayak gives you the perfect way to get up close and personal with marine birds and mammals.

2. There are so many opportunities for fishing here, salt and fresh water. Surf fishing is always a popular option as is the St. Augustine Pier. A private fishing charter is also a good choice.

8. With our 42 miles of beautiful white sand beaches, you can enjoy sunbathing, surfing, and shell-collecting which makes for a perfect beach day. The sunrises are spectacular if you are an early riser and you may also find shark’s teeth and shells that are long gone later in the day.

9. Paddle boarding is another popular water activity that also provides a quiet and leisurely way to explore the area. This quieter activity also gives the opportunity for observing marine wildlife up close and personal.
