Q:  How far is the St. Francis Inn from the beach?

Beautiful, sandy St. Augustine Beach is about 6 miles from the Inn. One of our complimentary guest amenities is An Afternoon at the Beach. The innkeepers own several beach lodging properties (rented separately on a nightly basis, like the Inn rooms), and Our Beach Cottage has a "day guest" area. It is equipped with beach towels and beach chairs for guests to enjoy a lazy day on the beach. We also provide designated parking places, cold drinks, a refrigerator for guest usage, and an outdoor shower. For maximum comfort, our guests also have access to the day-guests' private bathroom, complete with shower, towels, soap, and shampoo.
