One of the few beaches in St. John’s County that permits driving on the beach, Vilano is an easy-to-find beach destination. It’s just 2 miles north of historic St. Augustine and an easy place to park & picnic or for those of you who bring your whole house to the beach! Beach Driving access March 1 – the end of September.
My favorite feature of this beach is found along the boardwalk- there are several signs picturing some animals you may see during your trip. We prefer the extensive beaches of St. Augustine & Crescent Beach for family beach days but if you like driving out with all your gear, Vilano is the place for you.
Vilano Beach also offers a covered pavilion with picnic benches, restrooms & a shower. Lifeguards staffed seasonally.
