About Avila Beach

Made famous in the film “California Dreaming”, the community of Avila Beach is uniquely sheltered from the winds, offering beachgoers a warmer destination to stretch their toes in the sand. With oceanfront resorts and its abundance of natural hot springs, this is a relaxing get-away for vacationers. With some of the most relaxed rules in the area, Fisherman’s Beach, also known as Dog Beach, gives pets the opportunity to roam the surf leash-free, while Pirate’s Cove is clothing optional. Avila Beach Pier is a popular spot for tourists, while Harford Pier primarily serves commercial fisherman. Both piers and the beach have views out into the beautiful protected bay known as Port San Luis.
