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.
