The 15-mile stretch that lies across the harbor from downtown St. Augustine is one of the best kept secrets among the world’s beachgoers.  When you live here, you’re never more than a few minutes away from a beautiful beach that is wide, pristine, and for the most part un-crowded, where you can, at high tide or low, walk, run, drive your car, fly a kite, go kayaking, fish from the surf, hunt for sharks’ teeth, bike, or do nothing at all.  Eateries here embrace the casual mood of the island, but also offer a variety and complexity of culinary choices that are often difficult to find in a community of this size.  Your choices range from the world’s best fried shrimp to the (possibly) world’s largest burrito.  Don’t worry: You’ll walk it off!
