Ocean Hammock Basics

Including Cinnamon Beach, Hammock Beach Resort, Hammock Dunes and Ocean Hammock and the golf courses.


A resort area with two hammock benefits. You might first picture a rope hammock – maybe feet up, sipping a pink drink against the sunset. Absolutely, you're in the right place. However, the local use of 'hammock' denotes a hardwood forest – of great importance to maintaining a healthy ecosystem. At Ocean Hammock you have both – a gold-star vacation with expansive natural surroundings. The hammock is an attractive and natural buffer from nearby beach towns, making Ocean Hammock a distinct community. For immediate beach access and a bike-able, walkable community, this development is an ideal choice.

  • 2003: Michelle Wie wins the US Women's Amateur Public Links at Ocean Hammock Club.
  • 2006: Bobby Ginn (of The Ginn Company, later Ginn Resorts) buys Ocean Hammock Golf Course and the adjacent Lodge, adding these to the offerings at Hammock Beach Club and Resort.
  • 2007: In a second purchase, Bobby Ginn buys the club which rounds out Ocean Hammock's amenities. Also in 2007, the Ocean Course at Hammock Beach hosts a championship for the PGA Tour. Want to play it yourself?


While low-tide paddling reveals some of the best shells along the coast, beach shoes are recommended for soft feet. Swimming requires some caution as a rocky coquina reef sits close to shore. As for the cinnamon? Tiny crushed shells give the beach its namesake color, mixed into a warm sand. The resulting landscape is ever so beautiful and you'll never tire of looking at the shore while you relax with a guilty-pleasure beach book.

Ocean Hammock ideas


Scrubbing and soothing you with the best of local offerings, your spa experience can be as long and luxurious as you like – probably including coquina and sea salt products.


Stick close to home and yet see it all; perfect convenience if you're staying locally.

At one hundred seventeen feet, the Sundancer understandably comes with some cool stuff. Gadgets, gear, plus two bars... and a fireplace. She sails every Sunday for both brunch and dinner cruises, as well as a Happy Hour at sea for Wednesday cocktail cruises. Want her all to yourself? Private charters are available, and allow access to the ship's dressing room – should you wish to change into something more nautical.

While many of our restaurant recommendations and tips for beach access point you in the right direction, guests at Hammock Beach can take the lazy route and order one of four old-fashioned picnics. Choose wisely – only one includes fried chicken.
