Its slightly remote location makes it one of the less crowded beach towns in California and lends to its peaceful, laid-back atmosphere. The town is set in the San Luis Obispo Bay, which shelters it slightly from the elements and gives it calmer waters and a warmer climate than other beach towns on the Central Coast. It's the perfect destination for families, couples, nature lovers, and beach goers seeking a laid-back beach town with plenty of attractions and activities to discover.

The area and getting around

Arriving in Avila Beach

Avila Beach is conveniently located just a 10-minute, or 7-mile drive away from San Luis Obispo County Airport. The small airport offers regular domestic flights. Santa Barbara is the second closet airport 73 miles, or a 1-hour 15-minute drive, away from Avila Beach. Car rental companies are available at both airports and in most nearby towns. It’s strongly recommended to have a car throughout your stay in Avila Beach.

Getting around Avila Beach

Downtown Avila Beach is quite walkable with the beach, the pier, and many of the shops and restaurants centrally located just a short distance from each other. However, you will need a car to reach any points of interest outside the downtown area. There are many beaches, such as Olde Port Beach, Harford Pier, and other popular attractions that are a short drive from downtown Avila Beach.

Travelers and activities

Avila Beach for nature lovers

Nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty of ways to keep busy in Avila Beach. Hike along the Bob Jones City to Sea Trail. The 2.5-mile trail is flat and perfect for a hike or a bike ride. It’s a fantastic way to fully discover the beauty and nature around Avila Beach as you ride or hike through the rolling hills and vineyards. Stop by Pirate's Cove, one of the most beautiful beaches on the entire Central Coast of California. To reach the beach, you’ll have to walk along a flat dirt path for a few minutes until you see the beach. There are also sea caves here which can be easily explored.

Avila Beach for families

Avila Beach is full of fun activities for families of all ages. Stop by the Central Coast Aquarium where kids can learn all about the local marine life and browse the live exhibits. There’s also a large children’s play area right next door. Take a family trip to the wide and scenic shores of Fisherman’s Beach. Spend an afternoon splashing around in the calm waves and soaking in the scenic surroundings.

„The town is pronounced AH-vuh-la.“

Top 5 travel tips in Avila Beach

1. Swim at the Avila Hot Springs

The Avila Hot Springs were first established in 1907, and today you can purchase a day pass to use the heated pool natural mineral pools. The pools are fed by a geothermal spring and the water temperature lingers around 104 degrees. Spend the day relaxing in the healing waters or visit the onsite spa for some extra R&R.

2. Walk the Avila Beach Pier

No visit to Avila Beach is complete without a leisurely stroll along the iconic wooden pier. Set right on the main beach of the town, the pier is easily accessible and centrally located. It’s right across the road from several popular restaurants, cafés, and bars.

3. Go to the Point Luis Lighthouse

The Point San Luis Lighthouse is an iconic jewel of the town, and happens to be the only Prairie Victorian model lighthouse left on the west coast of the United States. Every Saturday there are three trolley tours which leave from downtown and go to the historic Point San Luis Lighthouse. Another, more unique option for getting to the lighthouse is to kayak or paddleboard there. Avila Beach Paddlesports offers guided tours to the lighthouse which take around 3-4 hours and might even include an encounter with sea lions, dolphins, or whales if you’re lucky!

4. Taste the local wines

Avila Beach is home to a world-class wine scene. There are seven different tasting rooms in the small town, many of which are within walking distance of the downtown center, but a few require a short drive just outside the town limits. If you’re a wine enthusiast, don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to try a variety of some of the best wines in Central California. Hint: Alapay Cellars is a must-visit!

5. Stop by Avila Valley Barn

The picturesque Avila Valley Barn is a must-visit for any traveler in Avila Valley.
