Vilano Beach is located just north of downtown St. Augustine, Florida. It is situated on the north side of St. Augustine's Matanzas Inlet. This beach has a steep drop-off, heavier surf, and a strong current due to its location near the inlet.
This is a great spot to enjoy both sunsets and sunrises in St. Augustine, with the sun rising over the Atlantic Ocean and then setting behind the historic cityscape to the west.
The main beach accesses offer restrooms, parking, showers, and lighting. Driving is permitted on Vilano Beach, however, it is only suggested for four-wheel-drive vehicles due to the thick sand along the shore.
Vilano Beach is considered a local beach and is one of St. Augustine's best-kept secrets. It's a good surfing spot, and a great spot for skimboarding -- the National Skimboarders Championship takes place here every August.
The beach is located off A1A North in Vilano Beach, just south of the Usina Bridge entrance.
