Avila Beach is a small seaside town located next to San Luis Obispo. There are three piers, a small fishing harbor, and a beautiful beach often packed with sunbathers. A fun park for kids and a lot of grass for dogs! The waterfront is lined with small restaurants, and bars that offer an interesting nightlife. On one of the piers you can find fresh fish for sale. Pelicans are always hanging around hoping to find some scraps of fish from the fisherman!
