The four-lane roads of Ponte Vedra Beach narrow to two as nature takes over the entire landscape. Mickler’s Landing (pronounced “mike-lers”) is just two blocks east of the A1A. The first public beach in Ponte Vedra, Mickler’s remains a local favorite, famous for its pink coquina-sand beach.
From the parking area, take the wooden walkway through 20-foot high sand dunes to experience unspoiled natural habitats for local wildlife. This beach is also a great spot to hunt for shark’s teeth.
Mickler’s Landing has bathroom facilities, outdoor showers, plenty of parking, and posted information about threatened and endangered species in the area. There is a handicapped-accessible walkway from the parking area to the beach as well.
Mickler’s Beach is dog-friendly. Please keep your pet on a leash at all times and remember to pick up after your furry friend.

Fort Mose Historic State Park is the site of the first legally sanctioned free African settlement in what is now the United States. In 1738, the Spanish governor of Florida chartered the settlement of Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose, or Fort Mose for short, as a settlement for those fleeing slavery from the English colonies in the Carolinas. Over the next 25 years, Fort Mose and Spanish Saint Augustine became a sanctuary for Africans seeking liberation from the tyranny of English slavery.
For half a century, visitors to St. Augustine have made the St. Augustine/St. Johns County Visitor Information Center their first stop upon arriving in the Nation’s Oldest City. Commonly known as the “VIC,” the center offers information on special and cultural events, brochures and guidebooks for the area's attractions, clean restrooms, a gift shop. The VIC is staffed with friendly fully licensed tour guide hosts who gladly share information on attractions, museums, tours, accommodations, restaurants and unique shopping opportunities. The VIC is where a St. Augustine vacation begins, whether you plan to stay a day, a weekend or longer.
