Ponte Vedra Beach

Hot and historic

According to legend, Spaniard adventurer Ponce de Leon set foot on this pristine stretch of beach during his quest for the Fountain of Youth. Blinded by his mission, he failed to realize the true value of the beaches he landed on. With billowing sea oats, Atlantic-blue waters and palmetto-fringed shores, nature is the real treasure here.

Today, Ponte Vedra is a renowned golfer's paradise, home to the PGA Tour and the World Golf Hall of Fame. Having moved firmly into the 21st century, it is also a gay-friendly Florida desitnation.
