Avila Beach

Avila Beach Golf Resort is a seaside resort located on the Central Coast 3 miles off Highway 101 between San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach. Nestled in the surrounding hills and on the bay, the resort includes a par 71, 6500-yard championship course. The front nine is situated within oak-lined valleys. The back nine transverses a tidal estuary. Golfers of all abilities will enjoy the challenge of this scenic course.

Bob Jones Trail, the Bob Jones City to Sea Bike Trail is a well-paved county-maintained bike trail. The trail is great for all levels of hiking and biking. It makes for an enjoyable, smooth and (mostly) flat ride with trail benches sprinkled throughout. Dogs are welcome on the trail but please pick up after them!

The Bob Jones Trail wanders next to San Luis Obispo Creek, right behind the Avila Valley Barn fields. You can enjoy walking by the fields, beautiful tress, and depending on the time of year, you will see many types of birds and hear flowing water. Hard to believe it’s so close to the beach!

Avila Hot Springs offers an Olympic-sized freshwater heated swimming pool with double slide, and a separate, old-fashioned 20′ x 20′ hot mineral soaking pool. Massage is offered for singles or couples by appointment.

Avila Valley Barn is open from May through December and has much to offer throughout its season. They have picnic benches and tables for you and your family to relax and enjoy your treats from our bakery with a fresh cup of coffee or fresh-pressed apple cider. Or, maybe you’ll enjoy just sitting a while to savor some of our homemade ice cream or candy. How about pie a la mode–a perfect combo from our bakery and sweet shoppe! During the summer, they also roast their own home-grown corn on the cob with creamy, melted butter–a treat not to be missed. And, on weekends, you can enjoy a free hay ride to pick seasonal fruit and produce.

In addition to our seasonal “u-pick” produce, they also have many other seasonal events and items you won’t want to miss. There are also many farm animals to view, pet, and feed. In the fall, they have a hay maze that delights children of all ages.

Avila Beach Sports Fishing Offers Fishing charters for Rock cod, Salmon, Halibut, and More! They also offer Whale watching and Private Charters.

Avila Bay Athletic Club and Spa is a full-service tennis and swim club which incorporates a ‘state of the art’ fitness facility. Our San Luis Obispo area gym is located on four acres of tropical grounds in the heart of the Avila Valley on California’s Central Coast.
