Child friendly: children love the pools and the beach, and there is also an on-site playground. Just want to relax? From your rocker on the patio, enjoy the view of the lagoon and listen to the fountain. Stroll around the grounds in the evening, or out to the beach. Watch for whales from the gazebos or the beach. Other wildlife is visible too, in the dunes as you cross the boardwalk to the beach, plus many species of birds, including a beautiful white egret that visits the water garden.

Across the Bridge of Lions is “oldest city” St. Augustine. Tour historic homes, the iconic Castillo de San Marcos, and the grand, gilded-age hotels and churches of Henry Flagler. Stroll St. George street, lined with restaurants and other popular attractions. Nearby are art galleries, boutiques, night clubs, and much more.
