River to Sea Preserve

9805 N. Oceanshore Blvd., Marineland

The River to Sea Preserve is located on both sides of highway A1A at Marineland and is owned jointly by Flagler County and the Town of Marineland. The River to Sea Preserve is a prized addition to Flagler County's unique and beautiful preserves, beginning at the beach of the Atlantic Ocean and reaching west to the Matanzas River (Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway), the River to Sea Preserve protects a rapidly disappearing maritime scrub environment.

Amenities are still under development and restoration. The 90-acre preserve offers walking trails, nature vistas, and ecological education opportunities, as well as public access to the beach. Visit the beachside boardwalk for a majestic view of the beach and ocean. The canoe and kayak launch provides access to the Intracoastal Waterway and the Matanzas River.

Visitors are able to wander though the oak scrub and hardwood hammock on the west side of State Road A1A, and enjoy a picnic lunch at the pavilion or at an overlook on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. Bird and plant life abound.
