St. Augustine Vilano Beach Highlights

  • 1920s - The area thrives during an era known as the Florida Land Boom.

  • 1937 - Hurricane winds irreparably damage the casino.
  • 1946 - As tourism resumes post-war and car travel gains popularity, the 'motor court' motel industry rolls into Vilano and development begins in earnest.
  • 2012 - The brand new Publix Grocery Store and Vilano Town Center open with new eateries.
  • 2012 - A new floating, public dock opens making Vilano accessible to yachts and boats. 


ATMOSPHERE

Vilano Beach is popular with those looking for a quiet beach with few interruptions from spotting wildlife or looking for sharks' teeth. Its popularity as a surfing destination will suggest that the waves can be rough for swimming, though by no means an absolute. opening of the brand new Publix in May 2012, Vilano may be the perfect location.

SAND

The beach is coquina (crushed shell), so shoes are recommended when going for a walk. You'll have great luck looking for sharks' teeth and shells. Yet more good news: sand castles build themselves on a coquina beach.

CARS ON THE BEACH

You can have it both ways on Vilano. Cars and car parking are only allowed on the southern end of Vilano. The rest of Vilano is car-free.
