Anastasia Island

Visitors to Anastasia Island can stroll along the beach to land’s end at the Saint Augustine inlet while enjoying the sun, sand, and surf at this beautiful beach.  Anastasia State Park is located near Saint Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, with abundant historical places and buildings to explore and experience when not at the island.

Anastasia State Park includes more than 1,600 acres of unspoiled coastal shoreline property and has become one of Florida’s most popular state parks.  Located off A1A about 2 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, Anastasia has something for visitors of all ages and interests.

This area features four miles of pristine beach, a tidal salt marsh, and a maritime and upland hammock.   A self-guided nature trail takes hikers through maritime hammocks on pristine sand dunes.  Those interested in other activities can enjoy biking, equestrian, camping, fishing or beach activities on this Florida jewel of a park.
