Hammock Beach Resort The Perfect Getaway
Two miles of unspoiled Atlantic shoreline and a wealth of luxury amenities make Hammock Beach Resort the perfect getaway without having to travel too far from home.
Located in Palm Coast on Florida’s east coast in Flagler County, Hammock Beach Resort is just south of historic St. Augustine and only a three-hour drive across the state for Tampa Bay Residents.Close enough for a couple’s weekend retreat, a splurge with girlfriends or a last-minute summer vacation with the kids.
Although Palm Coast is one of Florida’s newest cities, every effort has been made to preserve the old Florida feel with towering oak and pine trees. The local St. Joe Walkway and Linear Park is designated one of the Great Florida Birding & Wildlife Trails.
Full-Service Fun At Hammock Beach Resort
A Salamander Golf & Spa Resort, Hammock Beach Resort was recently renovated to deliver a four-star experience for guests. In addition to all-suite accommodations, guests can enjoy play time at two championship golf courses, a full-service spa and fitness center,an enormous water park complex, tennis center, marina and multiple onsite restaurants.
In 2016, Golf week Magazine gave both of the resort’s golf courses high acclaim, naming them to the magazine’s list of “Best Resort Courses” and “Best State-by-State Courses You Can Play.”
The 7,201-yard Jack Nicklaus-designed “Ocean Course” has a number of challenging features and boasts six holes with extraordinary views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The 7,776-yard
Tom Watson-designed Conservatory is considered one of the toughest courses in Florida with its combination of manicured greens and bunkered dunes, along with a few pot bunkers to get the adrenaline pumping.
For those who prefer tennis, The Tennis Center at Hammock Beach Resort features eight lighted Hydro-Grid clay courts over looking the Intracoastal Waterway. Take your game to the next level with private or group lessons, as well as daily clinics and even a cardio-tennis class.
Water Play At Hammock Beach Resort
The spa and fitness center, marina and pool complex/water park are equally impressive. Enjoy a signature massage with hot stones and aromatherapy at the resort’s top-rated spa, then relax outside in a hammock set up in the shade of a private cabana. Save time for yoga or a spin class at the fitness center, which offers the latest cardio and weight training equipment, as well as an on-site professional wellness coordinator.
Spend the morning walking the beach and swimming in the Atlantic Ocean currents. Then have lunch and a cocktail at the pool in the afternoon. The resort’s 91,000-square-foot multi-level water pavilion complex rivals theme parks but without the crowds. Take your pick of an adults-only pool, a zero-entry beach pool and water activities like plunging down the water slide or floating along the lazy river. There’s even an indoor pool with lap lanes and a spa garden area.
Nearby, you’ll find The Marina at Hammock Beach Resort, where boaters can reserve a slip for the day or week. Guests can also book a charter service for sport fishing, reserve a kayak or take a sunset cruise.
