ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH has consistently been ranked in the top ten of best beaches in the United States. While you can ready find plenty of information on the history of the city of St. Augustine, here's some little publicized history about St. Augustine Beach which is located on Anastasia Island:
Until the mid 18th century, the St. Augustine Beach area was used as pasture land for cattle and quarries for coquina. In 1730, a businessman from New York by the name of Jessie Fish claimed the coastal land south of the lighthouse and established the local citrus industry. The Fish family
cultivated this land through 1730 to 1820's. In the 1880's, St. Augustine Beach was called South Beach. The transportation from St. Augustine was provided via the South Beach Railroad. This train brought tourists to see the alligator farm, quarries, and lighthouse and to relax along the beaches. In 1920, the first hotels in St. Augustine Beach brought tourists who enjoyed this pastoral escape from formal St. Augustine. There were no paved roads. The only way to travel was over the dunes or to drive on the beach. The history of St. Augustine Beach is closely tied to the history of early exploration in North America. The settlements of the French, British and Spanish explorers in this area played an important role in the rich history of Florida and the United States.
