It’s no wonder why TripSavvy named Avila Beach the best beach in California. Avila Beach boasts charm, flavor, and fun, with long stretches of the Pacific Ocean, white sand, boardwalks, piers, wildlife and bustling harbor. Take a romantic stroll along the boardwalk, fish off Avila Beach Pier, or explore the boardwalk, all close by when you book a stay at Avila Village Inn. The Avila Beach Promenade contains several unique and eclectic shops, as well as restaurants where you know the seafood is served fresh daily. And if you want to catch your own, the pier is free to fish from during the day.
Avila Beach Pier is the center of Avila Beach. Explore the pier to fish, enjoy the views of the bay and surfers, or to watch migrating whales and other wildlife.
The Cal Poly Pier is not open to the public. This pier operates as a marine research facility. At 3000 feet long, it provides Cal Poly students, faculty and researchers with unrivaled access to the marine environment of the Central Coast.
