St. Johns County Beaches
About St. Johns County Beaches
With over 40 miles of scenic coastline, St. Johns County beaches offer some of the best recreational and wildlife viewing opportunities in the beautiful State of Florida. Just minutes from the historic district of downtown St. Augustine residents and visitors can park off-beach and walk, sunbathe, fish or enjoy wildlife viewing along endless miles of pristine coastline or park directly on the sand and enjoy a dip in the surf near one of the several staffed lifeguard towers.
Our beaches have several miles of coquina and white soft sand beaches set against a backdrop of natural dunes topped with sea oats. SJC Beaches are a popular location to hold special events such as weddings, parties, marathons and other events of similar nature.
St. Johns County offers both on and off beach parking options for beach access. Beach driving is permitted year-round, dependent on ocean conditions. Access passes are required from March 1st through September 30. Please find more information on vehicular access.
All St. Johns County off beach parking locations are free of charge. For a full list of all beach accesses including footpaths, walkovers, beachfront parks, and on beach access points check out the Interactive Map of Beach Access Points.
