River to Sea Preserve

The River to Sea Preserve protects a unique maritime scrub environment and offers nature trails and public access to the beach.

The River to Sea Preserve is located on both sides of highway A1A at Marineland and is owned jointly by Flagler County and the Town of Marineland. It is one of the parks partially contained in the 73,000 acres of land preserved by the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve.

This 90-acre preserve offers nature trails, ecological education opportunities, and public access to the beach. The Preserve protects a rapidly disappearing maritime scrub environment.

In addition to the trails on the west side of A1A, there's a beach side boardwalk on the east side that offers a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. There's also a canoe and kayak launch area for access to the Intracoastal Waterway. A picnic pavilion is available for rental.

Leashed pets are allowed in the preserve. The park is open from dawn until 11 p.m.
