Avila Beach, California

The Home of the Port of San Luis!

avila beach


Avila is an unincorporated little community located in San Luis Obispo County, California.  The town is distinctly different from other small communities on the Central Coast of California. 

Avila is the home of The Port of San Luis.  What makes Avila  different from other beach communities is the port, the hot springs and the apple farms located in the area. 

The day we visited Avila it was raining which is rare in mid October but we enjoyed every minute of our excursion.

When you visit the Central Coast of California, Avila Beach and the surrounding attractions is a must visit.

The picture below is from Avila Valley Farmers.  We had the best time shopping for pumpkins, watching the donkeys, goats and other animals interact with the tourist. 

The kids will enjoy a visit to the farm.  If you visit in early fall you  will be enchanted by all the fresh fruits and vegetables.  The farm is more like a fair than a farm.  You can take the kids on  hayrides and much more. For directions to Avila Beach Click Here

Hot Springs and Golf Courses!

If you are looking for a mineral bath or a day of golfing in the cool breezes off the Pacific Ocean Avila Beach is one place to look.   We have supplied several links you can use to book your stay on the Central Coast. If you look at the banners to the left and right you will find great ways to book your weekend trip or vacation.

See Canyon Apple Farms

See Canyon and the Gopher Glen Apple Farm is a great place to visit and buy a few fresh apples.  The picture below is from the farm and we love the variety of apples offered.  Apple season normally runs into December but regardless of what season it is Gopher Glen Apple Farm is a fantastic place to visit.

Gopher Glen Farms has more than just apples.  You can get the kids an ice cream cone and assorted gifts to commemorate your visit to the Central Coast of California.
