“Cars on Beach”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We walked from the Magic Motel and were amazed to see cars parked on the beach. Very handy for bringing your stuff! The cars stayed in the back though so did not affect the pedestrians. I loved that in early June it was not at all crowed. In fact, it was so quiet and peaceful that before long I was sound asleep on Vilano Beach. You should know that There is a charge for bringing your vehicle.

“Vilano is awesome!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We visited Vilano Beach and brought our Jeep to enjoy the 4wd access point. The great thing about heading to the 4wd only beach is there are fewer people and the inlet is absolutely beautiful from this location. Make sure you heed to 4WD ONLY signs- if you're in a 2wd car or truck, you WILL get stuck. We saw numerous people needing assistance.

“There are significantly better beaches in the area than Vilano”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

While the beach is lovely by virtue of being a beach... The entire shoreline here is jagged sea shell, no real sand. We hoped to swim and enjoy the view, but it was uncomfortable to say the least. If you're looking for relaxation and soft sandy beach, this isn't it.
