South Ponte Vedra Beach has served for many years as a vacation destination, as well as a primary home community to many Jacksonville and St. Augustine workers. Recently, many of the older beach houses have given way to upscale year-round homes that take full advantage of the ocean and state park views.

There are also a number of smaller gated communities on the Intracoastal (west) side of A1A. These neighborhoods offer amenities and private access to the beach. In 2001, the Serenata Beach Club brought a luxury private membership club to this quiet spot on the Atlantic ocean.
