With two championship golf courses, a 6.5 acre multi-level pool complex, a 10,000 square foot spa, and coquina-laden beaches just a stroll away, Hammock Beach Resort beckons to be explored. Situated just south of St. Augustine in seemingly undiscovered Palm Coast, the resort delivers an unspoiled haven overlooking two miles of the Atlantic shoreline.
With 330 guest suites and villas, guests will enjoy luxurious multi-room options for couples, families and groups of all sizes. There are Main Resort Suites; consisting of one, three and four bedroom ocean view units. Ocean Towers have three bedroom suites, each with private balconies with sweeping ocean views. The Lodge offers an intimate accommodation overlooking the Ocean Course. The Villas offer all the comforts of home, like a beach vacation condo. And finally, the Yacht Harbor Village, a premier harborside retreat for boaters and non-boaters alike, with two and three bedroom condos.
For golf lovers, the resort features 36 holes of Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson designed golf courses, The Ocean Course and The Conservatory. Golfers won’t be disappointed. Stop by the pro shop for a private lesson with Director of Golf, Brad Hauer, on the newly restored Jack Nicklaus designed Ocean Course. Recognized as one of the toughest courses in Florida, the Tom Watson designed course, The Conservatory, is sure to be a challenge.
Premier Italian dining is perfection at Delfinos, open daily for dinner only. Executive Chef, Kevin Luque, blends the freshest local seafood and finest cuts of meat, to showcase regional Italian dishes. The Atlantic Grille has ocean front views for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Loggerheads Lounge opens at 7 p.m. and offers a classic pub menu, located in the main resort tower.
Outdoor activities abound, with tennis, a nine-hole putting course, kayaking through the Intracoastal Waterway and marsh preserves, surfing lessons, bicycle rentals and beach picnics. The Water Park features a lazy river, twisting water slide and zero entry sandy beach pool.
