Top 10 Stops Along Florida’s A1A Scenic Byway

By Leah DeAngelis, A Luxury Travel Blog

Florida’s Historic Coast is an eclectic combination of old-world charm and history, natural habitat, and beachy fun. The drive south along the A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway from Ponte Vedra to Flagler beach is a visual feast of fish shacks, colorful beach houses, and 42 miles of unspoiled cinnamon sugar beaches. Step back into time in an old Spanish town, visit a luxury spa, restaurant hop for local culinary surprises, and head outdoors for endless activities including watersports, cycling, golf, and tennis. It’s a place ripe for the senses.

Ponte Vedra Inn & Club

If you are looking for a luxurious Florida beach getaway, Ponte Vedra Inn fits the bill and perfectly captures the mood. Rooms are directly in front of the ocean—you literally step out of your room and within a few steps, you’re in the sand. Sea glass blue walls and sumptuous décor make the rooms feel decadent but somehow still relaxed and beachy. You’ll notice a charming sea horse motif throughout the immaculate resort and a happy welcoming staff.

Watch the sun rise from your bed, sip coffee on the porch overlooking the sea, and see the moon come up right over the water at night. This particular beach is special for its abundance of ancient shark teeth that make for some fun beach combing. Dine at the Seahorse Grille for great views and exceptional food like their signature Caesar salad and grilled Mahi-Mahi.
