Lots of shells on this beach at low tide. I saw several people fishing here as well. Beautiful beach with not too many visitors when I went mid-week.

We rented a house and spent four days in this area. It was very nice and would love to do this again next year. All of our close family came and stayed and it was a very enjoyable weekend.

From sunrise to sunset this is a peaceful and wonderful beach. Truly some of the nicest beaches on the East Coast. Don't tell ANYONE!

Vilano Beach is just north of Saint Augustine on A1A. This is a nice community but it does not seem to offer any entertainment except the Atlantic Ocean. Beach access is difficult because of lack of parking
