The St. Augustine beaches boast miles of luxurious sand with beautiful weather year-round. Barrier islands naturally create the island waterway and miles of gorgeous coastline with many public areas for beach recreation and relaxation. Generally, vehicles wishing to gain access to the beaches may do so for a daily fee of $6.00 ($40 annual fee). Please be sure that you observe that no alcohol or glass is allowed. Also, pets must be kept on a leash. Personal watercraft vehicles must be launched from area boat ramps and not directly from the beach.
