Nocatee is the third fastest growing community in the country. It is located in Ponte Vedra about eight miles from the Atlantic Ocean. The Nocatee vision was based on the concept of transforming the peaceful setting of the land into a place with an exceptional quality of living while preserving the area’s natural beauty. By incorporating elements of “Smart Growth,” Nocatee provides its residents with recreation, shopping, schools, and beautiful homes – everything needed for an exceptional quality of life! Valley Ridge Academy (k-middle school) recently opened its doors for several subdivisions within Nocatee. Nature preserves, golf cart and bike paths (as well as dog parks) are part of the landscape. There is truly something for everyone here!
