Avila Beach

Avila Beach began as a quirky beach town with local characters and biker bars.

Welcome to Avila Beach

Being in Avila Beach today, one would never know the town was almost totally razed, excavated and reconstructed starting in 1999 following clean-up from a major oil spill. Off the beaten path, just South of San Luis Obispo, Avila Beach began as a quirky beach town with local characters and biker bars. After the reconstruction it has grown into a town with fine hotels, oceanfront restaurants, galleries, wineries, and shopping, all centered around the amazing white-sand beach with its own sunny, warm microclimate. There’s plenty here to keep families busy with activities like surfing, kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding and even fishing off of the pier!
