St Augustine​ & Ponte Vedra Holidays

Take a step back in time as you wander the quaint streets of St Augustine. Known as Florida's Historic Coast and steeped in centuries of history, this is a place where you can soak up the past, but still be on the beach within minutes. An enticing mix of fascinating museums, old architecture, superb sands and stunning State Parks, St Augustine holidays have it all. It's even claimed the fabled Fountain of Youth is here.

St Augustine really does have a unique appeal. This handsome little town is choc-full of captivating buildings like the Oldest House and the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse, where atmosphere seems to ooze from every doorway.  But the charm doesn't stop there, since the narrow lanes and winding streets are also dotted with cute cafés, one-off shops, antiques emporiums and cosy lamp-lit restaurants. Some of the townsfolk even dress in period costume.



But if it's the Great Outdoors you want, then head out to the beach to take advantage of St Augustine's mild winters, hot summers and boundless sunshine. The wide white expanse of the main beach sees the most action, with sunbathing, surfing and watersports. But if it's something a little more laid back you want, head to Vilano Beach, or to gorgeous Anastasia State Park, where you can wander amongst the dunes with only the waves for company.

Other things to do on St Augustine holidays are countless. You can take a cruise on the ocean to spot dolphins, pelicans, cormorants and kingfishers; you can play a round of golf at a number of top-hole courses; you can visit forts, an old jail, and a lighthouse; you can even take a tour of a chocolate factory. And just like that first chunk of chocolate, St Augustine holidays will most definitely leave you wanting more.​

Amazing Architecture

St Augustine Lighthouse

There's a whole list of fascinating historical buildings to discover. A firm favourite is the Ximinez-Fatio House, a 1798 inn and boarding house, restored to look just the way it did way back when.​ Also the theatrical Ponce de León hotel, now part of Flagler College, with its Spanish Renaissance turrets, towers and Tiffany glass.

St Augustine Lighthouse

This striking black-and-white striped lighthouse with its dashing red top was Florida's first, built in 1874. Climb the 219 steps to its summit for spectacular views over the town and coast. Then tour the museum to discover the life of a lighthouse keeper - but beware of passing shadows, since the lighthouse is said to be haunted!

Castillo de San Marcos

Built by the Spanish in 1695 to protect the town from marauding English pirates, this massive structure is the town's centrepiece. Rangers explain the fascinating history behind its 16-foot thick coquina walls, plus  you can wander amongst its turrets and enjoy the displays of cannon and musket fire.

Anastasia State Park

This four-mile stretch of beach backed by picturesque dunes offers picnic tables, windsurfing and sailing at one end, and deserted isolation at the other. Simply stretch out on the soft sand and admire the varied birdlife, or choose something more active instead: canoeing in the lagoon and saltwater fishing for bluefish, pompano, redfish and flounder are both on offer.

Fort Matanzas

Take the free ferry out to Rattlesnake Island 15 miles offshore to discover Fort Matanzas and its bloody history. The leisurely boat trip, with the chance of dolphin-spotting, is as much a part of the experience as the fort. Plus there's fabulous views and a beautiful 300-acre park with nature trails to explore.

You’re going to need an ESTA!
For anyone travelling to the USA, the US authorities have imposed a requirement for passengers travelling under the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP), to register for Electronic Travel Authority. Passengers who have not applied for and received travel authorisation via ESTA prior to travel could be denied boarding of the plane or be refused admission at the US entry destination. However, neither possession of a visa, nor meeting the basic requirements for travelling visa-free on the VWP, guarantees admission to the United States. As with most countries, the final determination of admissibility is made by immigration officials at the port of entry.

How do I apply for ESTA? 
Just fill in the online application form which you can find at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov. Before you travel, you will need to visit this website and fill in the form.

When is best to apply for my travel authorisation?
You will need to apply for entry via ESTA at least a minimum of 72 hours prior to travel if you intend to travel to America.

How long is the travel authorisation valid for?
Your ESTA will be valid for up to two years, or until your passport expires. It is also valid for multiple entries to America. However you must amend any necessary data, such as date of travel and your address whilst in the US.
