    I haven't eaten here but there are picnic tables and places for shade while you eat. The food seems to be typical American food ...burgers, fries, etc.

Anastasia State Park Warnings and Dangers

  • Shihar's Profile Photo

    by Shihar Written Jan 29, 2006

    When visiting Anastasia, please be mindful of the sea oats. They are the few plants that can live on the dunes. The long roots of the sea oats help to hold the sand and protect the dunes from wave erosion.

    Park and state laws prohibit the picking of sea oats flowers or seeds. Dune buggies and people are the worst enemies of the oats.

    Please use the boadwalks and beach ramps.

    When you go to Anastasia, you will see warning signs all over regarding rip currents. Please pay attention because even the most skilled swimmer can get caught.

    How to recognize, avoid, and survive rip currents-

    1) Most waves are caused by wind and storm at sea

    2) Waves hit the beach at angles. As a result, this energy creates a long shore current. It can be recognized by watching foam, swimmers, or debris drift up or down stream.

    3) As a set of waves break, water and energy to pushed against the shore. This displaced water will move along the beach with the long shore current until it finds its to sea.This is the rip current. You can easily spot a rip current by its foamy and choppy surface. The water can be dark brown.

    4) If you are caught in the current, don't panic. It will not pull you under. Call for assitance, or swim parallel to shore until you are out of the rip. Then swim to shore.
