Take a few minutes to drive south on A1A from Crescent Beachieve which is below St Augustine Beach. It is on the right side and there is free parking and a boardwalk to conveniently access the inlet. Best at high tide hours.

There was parking and a good boardwalk to get to the actual inlet/beach area. Mainly locals at the spot. The beach was really nice. Sand soft, not rocky. No seaweed and clean. The water was great and we enjoyed our morning there.
