Vilano Beach is located about two miles from St. Augustine and lies between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal and was home to the Grand Vilano Casino. Destroyed during a hurricane in the late 1930s, much of the Vilano area was undeveloped until mid-century.
Presently, Vilano Beach is an up and coming community offering a quaint, art-deco Town Center and beautiful beaches. Just minutes from the Nation’s Oldest City, Vilano Beach is one of St. Augustine’s best-kept secrets.
