St. Augustine #9 Best Beach in the U.S.


St. Augustine Beach #9 Travelers Choice Best Beaches

St. Augustine has made another list, this time we made‘s “Traveler’s Choice Best Beaches in the U.S.” Out of 12,383 miles of coastline in the U.S. little tiny St. Augustine outshines the rest.  With mostly uncrowded beaches, no high rises and a nice variety of beaches to choose from St. Augustine FL is probably the destination for you if you’re looking for a beach vacation.  With three distinct beaches there is one for every person.

The ever popular St. Augustine Beach located on A1a Beach Blvd.  is one of the most popular beaches in St. Augustine. This beautiful beach boasts the St. Augustine pier, great beach bars and relaxed lodging.  If you’re looking for a great beach to socialize, surf or fish look no further.  On a hot summer day you can see many St. Augustine locals and tourist alike having fun in the sun.  If you’re looking for restaurants try Sunset Grill, Mango Mango’s or Coquina Beach Club.

Vilano Beach is just a skip and a jump from downtown St. Augustine.  The crushed shell beaches and sleepy ‘undiscovered’ vibe are what make Vilano beach such a secret get away for tourist. The restaurants are enough reason to go to Vilano beach; Cap’s On The Water, Aunt Kates, Kingfish Grill and Reef to name a few.

Crescent beach has quite possibly the softest whitest sand of any beach you will go to.  Most days it’s a quiet beach away from the fray, the further south you go the more secluded you feel.  Crescent beach is close to many beautiful parks, Marineland and the surreal Matanzas inlet; go at sunset and you’ll be hooked.  If you’re looking for restaurants try South Beach Grill, O’laughlin’s and Matanzas Inlet Restaurant.

Carriage Way Bed and Breakfast is located just 3.5 miles from Vilano Beach and only 5 miles from St. Augustine Beach.  A great room to relax after exploring the beaches is our Amethyst room.  Through the private entrance a courtyard will greet you as you walk into this beautiful oasis.  A comfy king size canopy bed awaits along with a Jacuzzi bath.  Take a nice steamy shower from the rain-head shower complete with body sprays. Awake to our chef’s choice hot breakfast.  All of our live room rate and photos are here.
