Unlike Pismo Beach and many surrounding beach communities, Avila Beach faces south and is protected from fog and colder weather by the Point San Luis hills. Many locals refer to Avila as the "hole in the clouds" and like to say "it's always sunny in Avila Beach." Avila Beach enjoys one of the sunniest climates of any Central Coast beach community.
Easily accessible from Southern California, Northern California, the Central Valley and beyond, Avila Beach is perfect for an extended stay or a weekend getaway. Visit today to see why Avila Beach has been a prime destination for rest and recreation since 1876.
