One of the things that I discovered in researching about St. Andrews By the Sea was the opportunity to literally drive across the ocean floor at low tide to reach the famous Ministers Island. 
For approximately 5 hours each day you can reach Ministers Island by driving the approximate 1/2 mile across the sea floor. 
After spending time at Kingsbrae Garden we headed about 5 minutes down the road to drive across the ocean floor. It was so cool and one of the neatest things that we did on our trip!
At high tide the ocean floor is covered by at least 14 feet of water (typically way more than this) and so it is only accessible for a few hours everyday.
After driving it we got out and walked around for a little bit, in awe of the beauty that surrounded us.
The colors and the knowledge that we were walking on the ocean floor was overwhelming in the sense that it reminded you how small you are compared to the vastness of this beautiful world.
I hope that y'all get to go and visit- it is such a neat experience and a beautiful place! It is definitely not to be missed!
