Cap’s On The Water
4100 Coastal Highway
The Reef has one of the most spectacular oceanfront settings in Northeast Florida. Few culinary experiences parallel tasting fresh seafood above the dunes of the Atlantic. In fact, they are one of the only St. Augustine restaurants on the water. While dining on their patio, you’re just a few steps from the beautiful Atlantic ocean. Guests eating inside will appreciate large window views of the sand and waves.
Beaches at Vilano
254 Vilano Road
Tucked away on the waters edge, away from the main stream, Beaches is truly a little vacation spot right in our hometown where you can relax and enjoy a ‘no worries’ Caribbean island atmosphere. Known for having great food and signature drinks, Beaches is a great place where you can dine with your toes in the sand and listen to live music every weekend.
