    Nice beach

    This beach is quiet, family friendly and clean. My only complaint is its suppose to be doggie friendly, right? So where were the trash cans to throw away dog poop? Add some of those along the beach accesses and I will give you 5 stars when I return next year.

    Spent all day here with my field spaniel. It was really nice to have the car right on the beach. Lots of dogs, ALL on leashes! Everyone was well behaved!!

    The beach is amazing. You can park your car on the beach. The address is incorrect. Look for the Publix Super Market at Vilano Beach Town Center

    Leashed Beach is a plus!

    After living near the Gulf it was awesome to have my pup experience some Atlantic Ocean waves (low tide only)! I loved the beaches - not crowded clean with security and life guard on duty. Most people would think the leash a negative and while sometimes it did get in the way I prefer the leash when visiting new places with new dogs. All of the dog owners and dogs were very respectful and It made for a great evening! Only down side is the added orange sand (very hot and Shelly)

    From all the reviews I was so excited to go, however I was disappointed when I could barley run around with my pups because the sand was not sand, it was all crushed up shells and it hurt to walk on. The city of saint augustine however was beautiful and walking around the town with the dogs was much more fun.

    This is a super beach for dogs. Lots of space for running and a little sea refuse for sniffing. There is even a water shower at the entrance to clean any sand of everyone's feet.
