Vilano Beach is a region of St. Augustine that is reached by way of A1A North from the Historic District over the Vilano Bridge. Vilano Beach is home to seaside restaurants, hotels, and resorts just steps from the sand and sun. The area is known for being a good vantage for sunsets because the bit of land has a west coast that overlooks water. People can watch the sunset from places like Beaches on Vilano or Cap's On the Water. There are also entry points and docks for those interested in off-shore fishing. A parking lot located just over the bridge provides a place for people to keep their cars and boats.
Vilano Beach also has a pier that tourists and locals alike enjoy. The pier has dolphins adorning it and a statue known as the Bluebird of Happiness which serves as a frequent photo op for those visiting Florida.
The Kingfish Grill restaurant is located on the water near the Vilano Bridge and offers a wide variety of fresh seafood, from oysters, shrimp, scallops, and crab to calamari, sushi, and the catch of the day.
