If you have been searching for a perfectly relaxing coastal destination to head to for your next getaway, look no further than Crescent Beach. This is a relatively sparsely inhabited community located on a barrier island just sound of St. Augustine on the Atlantic Coast. From your gorgeous beachfront Crescent Beach condo, you will be able to kick back and relax under the sun while still being close enough to all that the St. Augustine area has to offer as well.
By far, the most popular way to spend time in Crescent Beach is to lounge at the beach, and you may have immediate access to the soft sand beach and rolling waves in the Atlantic Ocean from your condo. There are several lovely areas that are located in or close to the town as well, including Frank Butler County Park West in Butler Beach, the Fort Matanzas National Monument, the Silver Sands St. Augustine, the Ocean Hammock Park, Anastasia State Park, the St. Johns County Ocean Pier and others.
While you can spend many relaxing mornings and afternoons in your beachfront condo or relaxing on the beach, you may also be looking for fun things to do to break up your time at the beach. Throughout the St Augustine area, you will find a number of popular attractions, and some of these include St. Augustine Distillery Company, St. Augustine Wild Reserve, Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum and more.
The St. Augustine area is one of the most historic cities in the country, and because of this, there is a considerable amount of historical and cultural areas to explore. For example, you can explore the Mission of Nombre de Dios, Flagler College, the famous Basilica Cathedral, the St. Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum and the Ximinez-Fatio House. There are also several venues where you can catch musical performances as well as minor league sporting venues with home games in the local area.
If you have been thinking about heading down to Crescent Beach for a fun-filled getaway, you may be wondering when the best time of year is to travel to the area. The weather in this coastal area of Florida is wonderful almost year-round, making it an ideal getaway for both a winter and summer retreat. The summers are relatively warm, but coastal breezes keep the temperature from getting too hot. The average high throughout much of the summer season is in the 90s. In the winter months, the average high is in the 50s and 60s, but many spring and fall days have highs in the 80s or higher. The coastal breezes warm up the temperatures during the winter months and cool down the temperatures during the summer months. Keep in mind that hurricane season runs from the spring through the fall, so there is a chance of intense storms during this period of time.
When you are ready to enjoy all that the Crescent Beach area has to offer, you may be ready to pack your backs and get moving. You can fly into St. Augustine at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport, or you can fly into the nearby Jacksonville or Orlando airports. Then, you can drive into the beach area by accessing Highway 1 via Interstate 95. Keep in mind that other nearby towns other than Jacksonville and Orlando include Daytona Beach, Gainesville and Ocala.
