SHORT HISTORY OF AVILA BEACH
WHAT MAKES AVILA BEACH SPECIAL?
WHAT MAKES AVILA BEACH SPECIAL?
  • MICRO-CLIMATE

    Avila Beach’s position on the coast gives the town a unique microclimate. This is due to being tucked away in the harbor and shielded by the surrounding mountains.

  • QUIET, RELAXED, FAMILY FRIENDLY

    While there are plenty of libations to be had in Avila Beach, this town is chill, quiet and family-friendly. Throw the windows open and hear nothing but the surf. And if you’re looking for party central, head down the beach to Pismo.

  • SURF

    With the shore being sheltered by the harbor, the surf is not as intense as it is along the coast. For this reason, many don’t consider Avila Beach as a surfing destination but it actually makes for an excellent learning environment!

  • CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

    Whether you are a foodie, sucker for spa life, beach bum, or outdoor adventurist, Avila Beach has something for everyone. Pick and choose your own adventure, and have a different experience every day!

  • SMALL TOWN CHARM

    Avila Beach isn’t a town with high-rise condos, chain or commercial anything, or resort-lined beaches. With one road in and out, Avila Beach is not a chance encounter; it takes a deliberate choice to come to Avila Beach.

  • SIP AND SAVOR

    Avila Beach has a rich food and wine scene for such a small town. Explore the scene, from beachfront dining to high-quality tasting rooms. Avila Beach even has its own brewery!

ONE WAY IN MEANS TRAFFIC

Did you know there is only one road in and out of Avila Beach? This means traffic can be a bear in high season, so take the Trolley to and from Pismo Beach. Enjoy the view as you make your way to the best beach town on the Central Coast.

PARKING IS A PREMIUM!

When you want to travel to Avila Beach on vacation, find a vacation rental that includes parking. Landing Passage offers covered private parking in a parking garage, and some of the rentals even offer an attached garage.
