An Oceanside St Augustine Hotel: Bask in the Sun and the History
You have easy access to the beach that the locals know is best. Vilano Beach HotelNever too crowded, Vilano Beach is a favorite for surfers, skim boarders, kite boarders, fishermen, and those hoping to catch a glimpse of dolphins. The peninsula of Vilano Beach that juts out where the Matanzas River meets the ocean is called Porpoise Point and it’s not rare to catch sight of them leaping and bounding in the water. The sparkling pool gives you a chance to take a break from the salty waves. Walk the beach by moonlight to see baby sea turtles scampering to the sea.
The OceanView Lodge is also near the public access fishing pier and beach pavilion, complete with grills, a toddler park, restrooms, and outdoor showers, giving you the chance to rinse off before heading back up to your room for a relaxing afternoon nap. There are excellent local restaurants right in Vilano Beach and, of course, in St Augustine.
