About 15 minutes south of St. Augustine is Ft Matanzas National monument.

Constructed between 1740 - 1742, this outpost fort represents a well-preserved masonry watchtower built by the Spanish. Fort Matanzas now serves as one of the reminders of the might of the early Spanish empire.

There's a park in the the barrier island setting along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and the Matanzas estuary where you can have an exceptional experience of natural habitat rich in wildlife, with coastal scrub, dense hardwood hammock and the open expanse of saltwater marshes.

This route provides you with access to 410 acres of coastal scenery that comprise Washington Oaks State Gardens. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Matanzas River, this area is famous for the unique shoreline of coquina rock formations that run along the Atlantic beach.
