Sports & Outdoors

The St. Augustine landscape is a mixture of beautiful marsh land, scenic and sandy beaches, wild inlets, and coastal forests. The great outdoors serves as a natural backdrop for visitors and residents to go kayaking, play sports, fish, and explore. Our Calendar of Events lists the many outdoor sports and recreation options too, including numerous marathons, golf tournaments, fishing charters, paddle boarding excursions, and more. Exploring and enjoying sports and outdoors in St. Augustine is easy from the Municipal Marina and the many beaches, state parks, and golf courses in St. Augustine.
