Surfside Estates Amenities

We’re proud of our community here at Surfside Estates and happy, that in addition to living by the Atlantic Ocean, that we have so many amenities making life here fun, easy, and enjoyable. As you review the many things we have to offer, remember:   Our share owners pay no lot rent, and the low monthly association fee is only $140 per month, per residence.

At the Clubhouse

Here are some Clubhouse details: Our large, two-story, completely renovated, fully-owned clubhouse building houses the Surfside Estates office, exercise room, community bulletin board, and bathrooms on the ground-level. Stairs, and an elevator, take you to the 2nd-floor clubhouse facilities, and rooftop deck. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the pool area, two shuffle ball courts, and a bike rack.

Along our Intracoastal Waterfront

We have a beautiful, long, waterfront park along the Matanzas River – with a gazebo, outdoor grill, horseshoe pit, picnic tables, and benches.

A recently-built watercraft rack, right by the waterfront, allows convenient storage for your kayaks, canoes, and small boats. A launch spot with a tiny ramp and beach area for getting your craft in the water makes it quick and easy to get going.

Two covered, lit, piers on the Intracoastal, are designed for fishing – and have benches and chairs if you just want to sit and watch and enjoy a beverage while large yachts, dolphins, and the occasional manatee passes by.

Surfside Estates Recreation

We’re a busy community here at Surfside Estates. Lots of opportunities to keep fit!

Walking

Start by Walking! Homes and yards are always changing and it’s fun to walk our streets to see what’s new and what you may have missed before. Besides being a great way to meet your neighbors, you can’t help but feel wonderful as you enjoy the breeze and the beautiful views along our lengthy scenic waterfront street on the Intracoastal. Many residents start or end their day walking alone, or with a group – sometimes just one street, sometimes doing the whole perimeter, and for the athletic and Fitbit crowd… up and down all the streets.

Exercise

Like to exercise alone? Our Exercise Room (1st floor of the Clubhouse) is open 24 hours-a-day. Or participate in one of our group exercise activities like Exercise classes, Yoga classes, and Pool Aerobics (class availability varies throughout the year). Speaking of the pool… don’t forget to do some laps, or practice the pool exercises, on your own time. The pool is lighted, stays open till 10PM, and is a great place from which to watch the sunsets. See you there! Outside, there are two Shuffleboard courts (by the pool), and pits for Horseshoes (out by the Intracoastal waterfront.)

Biking

Go biking, 2- or 3-wheel, and venture out of the community, north or south along scenic A1A. Not so recreationally-minded? Go for a Golf Cart ride. With our views it’s no surprise that many of our residents enjoy it.

Games of Skill

Play a fun or competitive game of 8-Ball, or practice your Pool skills on one of our 2 Pool tables, located in the clubhouse. A Ping Pong/Table Tennis table is also available in the Clubhouse. Equipment is available by the tables.

Intercoastal Dock

Speaking of the Intracoastal… it’s great for your Re-Creation! Our 2 piers over the Matanzas River make it easy to go fishing, or surf fish from the shore. Boats are not allowed to tie-up to the pier, but for small boats there is a small PVC-ramp to assist getting in and out of the water. A newly built watercraft rack, by the shore, allows you to store your canoes and boats (free), and to get on the water quickly. Kayaking and Canoeing can be great exercise and you’ll love having them so close to such a beautiful waterway.

And last, but not least, have a lot of fun, and get moving, by playing on a Wii Bowling team. Teams meet weekly (most of the year) and play at the Clubhouse. Even if you don’t play, come and watch a bit… it’s not unusual to see a 300 game. Wow – when’s the last time you saw that?

We hope you know by now: there’s a beautiful, sandy, Atlantic Ocean beach… just across the street! There is Handicap accessibility at the nearby Beverly Beach Town Hall. It’s a beautiful beach for walks, sunning, swimming, fishing, body-surfing, etc. The beach is “leashed-dog” friendly, and small campfires are permitted except for May 1 to October 31 when our sea turtles are nesting!

There are lots of Golf Courses in the area.

There are Tennis Courts about 4 miles away in Flagler Beach – near the public library and in Wadsworth Park. A bonus here… both parks have access to scenic boardwalks that meander along the Intracoastal waterway.

There are 3 dedicated Pickleball courts about 7 miles to our north, behind the Hammock Community Center, on MalaCompra Road. This center is very close to the beachfront, pet-friendly, MalaCompra Park.

What a great area we live in! There are many State Parks and public Recreation areas to enjoy nearby!
