Our Tips for a Successful Morning in St. Augustine

A wonderful way to begin your day in St. Augustine is watching the sunrise and taking a walk on the beach.

Watching the sunrise and taking a walk on the beach is one of the best ways to begin your day in St. Augustine. While there are plenty of spots to get a good view, we have a few favorites. Check out one of these three places to watch a St. Augustine sunrise:

  1. St. Augustine Beach, Crescent Beach, and Vilano Beach have the most spectacular and clear views.
  2. The bayfront near the Castillo De San Marcos.
  3. The Mission Nombre De Dios, down near the Intracoastal Waterway

After enjoying the sunrise, it’s time for a coffee, pastry, or a full, hearty breakfast! St Augustine is known for its great dining scene, and there is truly something for anyone.
