There is a lot more to see than just the lighthouse. If climbing it isn’t on your agenda, there is still a great museum with lots to learn
Built in 1871, this is still an operational lighthouse. Climb all 219 steps to the top for stunning vistas and tour the light keeper's house to learn about the history and their archeological program.
Truly an amazing view at the top.. also a great workout. The surrounding museum and garden are fun for the whole family too.
Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum serves as a scenic and educational maritime museum. It stands 165 feet above sea level, overlooking the Matanzas Bay and the Atlantic Ocean from Anastasia Island.
