DISCOVER AVILA BEACH
On those rare days when it’s grey and gloomy anywhere else, count on the clouds to part and the sun to shine down on glorious Avila Beach. With a microclimate so consistent and a small-town charm so enduring, Avila is everyone’s favorite summer getaway. Sun worshippers delight in the expanses of well-kept sandy beach on either side of the historic pier. There’s surfing, kayaking, cycling, and roller blading; sport fishing and whale-watching; plus great day hikes and peaceful walking paths. Picnic tables and permanent barbecues welcome families and dogs; an interactive Sea Life Center offers fun ways to learn about marine life; and every Friday, a lively farmer’s market fills the oceanfront street with friendly vendors and great live music. An exceptional RV camping area offers a full roster of amenities, and shops can supply your every need.
