Overview

The seaside community of Ponte Vedra Beach oozes with exclusivity. Its beach is synonymous to world-class golf and posh resorts. Just the mere mention of the unincorporated town in St. Johns County to anyone in Florida will bring glimpses of a pristine beach front and frames of sand dunes and palm trees. Thousands of vacationers descend to the upscale tourist resort for both summer and winter escapes. Ponte Vedra Beach’s spa, shopping, golf, tennis, and other seasonal activities will surely make all destinations truly memorable.

Things to Do

The community of Ponte Vedra Beach enjoys one of Florida’s most beautiful beaches. Not surprisingly, the sea and sand in this side of town plays hosts to an endless list of avenues for leisure and recreational pleasures. The white sandy beach framed by generous palms is the perfect setting for a picnic lunch, sunrise jog, and body surfing. If you’d rather earn your tan through golf, Ponte Vedra has both a lagoon and an ocean course. The Par 72 of the Ocean Course stretches for more than 6,500 yards. It was designed by architect Herbert Bertram to challenge professionals.
