The beaches in St. Augustine are spectacular: white silky sands, bright, sparkling blue waters, and stunning vistas stretching for miles. The Sunshine State is the perfect place to plan your next getaway where the uniform is flip-flops, bathing suits, and swim trunks. However, when you choose St. Augustine for your destination vacation, you’ll also love the dining options, historical sites and museums, and lively nightlife. 

One of our favorite beaches in St. Augustine is named after the Nation’s Oldest City itself: St. Augustine Beach. Located on Anastasia Island, this is where we send guests staying at Casa de Sueños or our sister property, the St. Francis Inn. This beautiful stretch of beach is under six miles from our romantic bed and breakfast, and it’s the perfect place to sit back, dip your toes in the warm waters, and soak up the sun. 

After a day in the sea air at the best beaches in St. Augustine, you’ll be ready to freshen up and relax, and that’s where our luxurious St. Augustine Bed and Breakfast comes in. You’ll love returning to your air-conditioned guest suite for a cleansing bath or shower, slip into your robe, and just let all of the stress wash away. Our inn is designed for adults only and is the ultimate place for couples to unwind and reconnect. Start planning and book your room today!

Stunning Beaches in St. Augustine near our Bed and Breakfast

A beach day in St. Augustine, the Nation’s Oldest City, offers a perfect blend of sun, sand, and history. Visitors can bask in the warm Florida sun, swim in the refreshing Atlantic waters, and explore the unique coquina sand that gives the beaches their distinctive charm.

With the historic downtown just a short drive away, it’s easy to combine a relaxing day at the beach with an afternoon of exploring centuries-old landmarks, making St. Augustine a truly unique coastal destination.

Here are the best beaches in St. Augustine to add to your itinerary : 

  1. St. Augustine Beach: This beach spans 14 miles of warm, sandy shoreline. Once you’ve crossed the dunes, lay out your towel and curl up with a good book, enjoy watching boats pass by on the horizon, try boogie-boarding or surf fishing, and you might even see dolphins playing in the surf just beyond the shore.
  2. Vilano Beach: At the northern end of St. Augustine lies the charming community of Vilano Beach. The locals consider this beach their best-kept secret, as it is less crowded than some of the beaches in St. Augustine. However, you’ll still find plenty of waterfront restaurants, including the popular spot Caps on the Water, the Vilano Beach Fishing Pier, parasailing and Sea-Doo rentals, and several parks in the area.
  3. Anastasia State Park: This beautiful state park features completely unspoiled beaches, as cars are prohibited. This area is a protected bird sanctuary, so it is the ideal stop if you love bird watching and being immersed in nature. You can read all about Anastasia State Park here. 
  4. Crescent Beach: The southernmost beach in the St. Augustine area, also located on Anastasia Island, is perfect for nature lovers. It’s a great place for beachcombers to explore and is considered one of Florida’s most unspoiled and beautiful beaches.
  5. Butler Beach: For conservationists, this lovely beach is known for its fragile dune ecosystem and is home to the endangered Anastasia Island beach mouse and the gopher tortoise.
