Matanzas Inlet…Sparkling Jewel of St. Johns County, Florida
Matanzas Inlet is much more than a simple channel in Florida that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the south end of the Matanzas River. With rich Spanish and American histories, Matanzas Inlet is home to some of the most beautiful sites in Mother Nature, not to mention classical man-made architecture. That said, you’ll discover that some of the most gorgeous homes and condos of the southeastern U.S. is situated along Matanzas Inlet’s coastline.
Connected by a modern bridge on State Road A1A, Matanzas Inlet offers its residents privacy while maintaining convenience. It’s only 14 miles south of St. Augustine and three miles north of Marineland, which means residents are never too far away from larger city events or activities.
Matanzas Inlet is also home to Fort Matanzas. Fort Matanzas’s origins go back as far as 1565 when the Spanish constructed a watchtower as a lookout for the protection of St. Augustine. In particular was their need to protect their "Castillo de San Marcos," a masonry star-shaped fort made of coquina stone in St. Augustine.
In the mid-1700’s the English gained control of the fort and Florida. Then in 1923 Fort Matanzas was proclaimed a national monument and restoration of it began in the years that followed. Today Fort Matanzas is part of the U.S. National Park Service so its history, and the wildlife which resides there, is fully protected for years to come.
With a close-knit community, beautiful homes and a colorful history, Matanzas Inlet continues to be one of the hidden treasures along the Florida coastline.
