What to Do at
Anastasia State Park

Inside Anastasia State Park

There’s plenty to do as you explore the maritime forests and shores of Anastasia State Park. Go fishing, spot local birds, or do some surfing in the water. Activities in the park include:

Birding: Thanks to a variety of habitats, there is also a variety of birds that live in the park. It’s one of the most important areas for beach-nesting birds on the eastern coast of Florida. It’s also along the eastern coastal flyway for migrating birds, so many of them stop off to eat and rest in the park before continuing their journey. The park is part of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. 

Visit the Old Spanish Quarries: The Spanish Coquina Quarries in the park are the primary source of coquina, a variation of limestone that’s made up of sand and mollusk shells. The famous Castillo de San Marcos and other buildings in the Spanish colonial town of St. Augustine were made from coquina. The quarries are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Paddling: There are canoe and kayak launches in the park, and Anastasia Water Sports rents paddleboards, kayaks, canoes, and sail boats. 

Geo-seeking: Many Florida parks have geocaches for visitors to find. Get off the beaten path and hunt for some treasures. 

Surfing: You can surf along the shores of the park as well, and get a closer look at the park’s water wildlife.
