I moved to St. Augustine Beach in 2015 from Jacksonville, FL. Living here is a drastic difference when compared to Jacksonville. Overall, the atmosphere is family-friendly and very safe. There are many places to visit and many things to do. Restaurants and businesses are currently working on increasing the night life here. St. Augustine Beach tends to be very touristy, with loads of people from many places around the world. I have been able to make many friends who live very close to me. The beach is a step away. This small town in St. Augustine grasps a "homey" feeling full of happiness and fun.

Plenty of places to eat, and hang out on the beach. During the summer beaches are crowded and traffic can get bad. Recently because of the hurricane, they are trying to restore the beach and sand because we lost a lot of it from the storms. Water is warm, and there a good ice cream places to eat at. You could spend the whole day at the beach, parking is allowed on beaches but must purchase a pass. Nice place to live or visit.
I love Saint Augustine beach. Especially after hurricane Matthew, it is evident that the community came together to clean up and restore this part of town. There seemed to be a lot of destruction but I could tell the city's spirit was not broken. I really enjoyed the tranquility of the beach and the multitude of places to choose from for food and leisure. My personal favorite was the restaurant Salt Life. Their food was superb and you could see the ocean from the deck. I would recommend this part of Saint Augustine to anyone willing to have a relaxed afternoon.
