Mickler's Landing Beachfront Park
Please note: Dune reconstruction is currently being done at Mickler's Landing. The park will remain open to the public seven days a week, with scheduled hours from 11 a.m. to sunset Monday through Friday and from sunrise to sunset on Saturday and Sunday.
Mickler's Landing Beachfront Park offers a full range of facilities and a beautiful beach for sunbathing, swimming, and searching for sharks' teeth.
The beach is located on the southern end of Ponte Vedra Beach and just north of the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Reserve, and it features a handicapped-accessible dune walkover from the parking area to the beach.
The Mickler's Landing access ramp provides vehicle access to the beach. A nominal access fee is charged from March 1 through Labor Day to drive on the beach. Visit here for more information. Rules for driving on the beach are clearly posted and are strictly enforced for the safety of beach goers.
Horseback riding is allowed during designated times only with a special permit. More information is available here.
Mickler's Landing does allow dogs to visit, but requires them to stay on a leash.
