he Vilano Beach Pier Pavilion is located on the inlet of the Atlantic Ocean and the Matanzas River. It has a retro look to it with covered benches for shade and a novelty dolphin sculpture archway. A statue of a bird greets visitors with the message “Happiness is Vilano Beach, Florida.” The pier is one of many places to fish in St. Augustine, and serves as a venue for events like the Sunset Celebration.
The Vilano Fishing Pier is free to the public. Visitors on vacation can catch the sunset from the pier as they look over the water.
