With its own uniquely sunny and warm microclimate, Avila Beach is a breath of fresh salt air. Only one road stretches along this beach, with ocean front shopping and dining along the strip. Different activities include kayaking, bike rentals and boating. The Avila Pier is also one of three piers in the town of Avila Beach, the others being the Cal Poly State University Pier, and the Harford Pier. The Avila pier gives visitors the opportunity to take a 1,685 foot long stroll and is used for site seeing and recreational fishing.
