Ponte Vedra sits just 18 miles from downtown Jacksonville and is part of the larger Jacksonville Beaches area.
TOP medical FACILITIES
If it’s the beach you’re seeking, you’ll be happy to know that the coastline is 100% open and easy to access, all down A1A. Beach visitors can explore the pier at the end of 4th Ave North or take a short stroll down to the Pier Restaurant, which features live music most days.
This area is also home to the famous Joe’s Crab Shack and Mango’s Beach Bar, two places you must add to your list.
If you want to immerse yourself in the history of the nation’s oldest city, we recommend the following destinations:
Bathe in luxury at the spa at Ponte Vedra Inn & Club’s award-winning spa. With over 50 spa services and packages to choose from, you’re guaranteed to leave the facility looking and feeling your best. Book a full spa day or just a single service and enjoy the pool and spa café during downtime.
Pro-tip: Plan to schedule a month to six weeks in advance for preferred times during peak spring and summer months.
For the golf enthusiast, we recommend the newly renovated Jacksonville Beach Golf Club or the professional-level TPC Sawgrass, which hosts THE PLAYERS Championship each spring.
Whether you’re an experienced player or just getting started, booking a tee time will allow you to find out firsthand why Ponte Vedra has become one of the golf capitals of the east coast.
If you’re looking for family-friendly attractions, we recommend exploring Shipwreck Island Water Park in Adventure Landing, South Beach Park, or the local playscape or skate park.
As you might imagine, Ponte Vedra is the perfect place to find something to eat or drink. We recommend exploring a few local establishments: for a great burger, seek out Poe’s Tavern or M-Shack. For casual and fried seafood, try Beachside. For Latin Fusion and a great margarita, head to the Flying Iguana Taqueria and Tequila Bar!
For the fresh catch of the day, we recommend North Beach Fish Camp every time. Looking for hand-crafted afternoon cocktails and appetizers? Our favorites are Pussers or the Lemon Bar.
If breweries are more your style, Ponte Vedra makes it easy to take a tour. With five local breweries and many just a stone’s throw away, you’ll never go thirsty. We love Engine 15, Atlantic Beach Brewery, Green Room, and Southern Swells.
Shop and dine like a local at Ponte Vedra’s premier community center! Sawgrass Village is home to over 20 unique and award-winning restaurants and boutiques. Designed to allow visitors to stroll comfortably from shop to shop, you’ll see unique treasures, designer finds, and more in this beautiful destination.
