Avila Beach is a breath of fresh salt air, with amenity-laden hotels, charming oceanfront restaurants, magnificent local wines, and shopping and activities for all to enjoy. The main beach is sheltered in San Luis Bay, which is formed by Point San Luis on the west and Fossil Point on the east. It is a perfect spot for wine tasting, hiking, whale watching and of course lots of beach fun! When you`re not enjoying the beach, stroll along the promenade on Front Street and pursue its shops, bistros and chic tasting rooms, like the one at Peloton Cellars. Then go for a soak in the mineral-rich waters of Avila Hot Springs.
