You will pass the Castillo San Marcos and Firm and Faithful, the lions at the bridge, then over the Bridge of Lions and you have arrived on Anastasia Island.
Anastasia Island is the barrier island to historic St Augustine. The island boasts a variety of neighborhoods offering a lifestyle which will suit every one’s needs. The island features the lighthouse, marinas, 23 miles of white sandy beaches and the “good living” list goes on. Anastasia Island starts at the City’s Inlet at Davis shores and south to the Matanzas inlet at Crescent Beach. There is a neighborhood to suit every lifestyle from beach cottages to condos to gated communities.
We have beachy neighborhoods, the ocean front gated community, Marsh Creek Country club, condominiums, single family homes and apartments to meet everyone’s needs for style and pricing. And we have beach, miles and miles of white sandy beaches that you could ride your bike or drive your car on if you have a 4 wheel drive. This is a link to some photos taken at the beach I love best.
