Sunshine State enjoyments in Ponte Vedra Beach

Surrounded by lush green fairways and glowing white beachfronts, cut through by manicured boulevards of swaying palms trees and verdant grass, punctuated by iridescent sand bunkers and chic yachting clubs, Ponte Vedra Beach is one of the most iconic resort towns on Florida's northern Atlantic coast. With oodles of golf courses, mile upon mile of salt-washed Sunshine State sand, and historic landing sites once trodden by Spanish conquistadors all on the menu, Ponte Vedra Beach vacation rentals put you within strolling distance of plenty of things to see and do.

Things to do

Rubbing shoulders with golfing greats at Ponte Vedra Beach

When it comes to hitting the fairways, there's no question that it's the iconic TCP at Sawgrass that's the piece de resistance of the town's line-up of clubs. This manicured, PGA-attested clutch of carefully designed holes is home to the uber-challenging Island Green 17th – just see if you can save par on that. To round it off, a trip to the World Golf Hall of Fame in nearby St Augustine is where trophies and tales of the game's greats unfold. And that's not even mentioning the swashbuckling Pirate and Treasure Museum there, where Spanish doubloons glisten in the chests.

Activities

In search of that Ponte Vedra Beach hole in one

Ponte Vedra Beach is now hallowed ground in the golfing world. World-class championship courses and low-key public 9-hole courses abound in the area, which means you'll never be short of a round. There's also exhibitions dedicated to the greats of the game, which are balanced out with other history museums, where tales of seafaring pirates and Spanish explorers are the subject. And if you've booked Ponte Vedra Beach vacation rentals close to the beach, you can also look forward to scuba diving, dolphin watching, and snorkeling excursions out into the Atlantic Ocean.

Weather

Enjoy winter sun in Ponte Vedra Beach

Ponte Vedra Beach is alive and kicking with golfers and sun worshippers for much of the year. That's because the summer means tropical temperatures in the 90s, while the winter really does live up to the reputation of the Sunshine State. Between November and March, you'll get mild, dry, and warm days that are simply perfect for heading out for a round of 18, not to mention beachcombing the dunes and kicking back with a cocktail in the chic bars along the seafront.

Ponte Vedra Beach gilds Florida's shimmering coast
