Anastasia Island St Augustine Fl, has an estuary behind the beach, in the same campground. No fees and if you want you can paddle to the ocean, warning there is a strong current at that point.
We went late so only paddled out an hour. The one side is a bird Preserve, that becomes a ocean Beach, the other side is expensive homes, large dock like structures, a sailboat and catamaran, parking area. Could be busy in season, but if you hug the park side you should be safe.
