Located about 160 miles (257 km) northwest of Los Angeles, Avila Beach itself is less than 0.5 miles (0.8 km) long and sheltered in San Luis Bay, which is formed by Point San Luis on the west and Fossil Point on the east. Average temperatures vary little during the year, ranging from the upper 40s to low 70’s Fahrenheit from November through April, and from the 60’s to low 80’s from May through October.
Most of Avila Beach is undeveloped, except for a few blocks adjacent to the beach with homes, hotels, and small businesses, and a few recently built upscale housing developments inland, near a golf course. Avila Beach is also known for its hot springs, which are used for resort spas. Avila Beach has three piers: Avila Beach Pier, 1,685 feet long, intended for tourist strolling and recreational fishing, Harford Pier, which is for commercial fishing boats to offload their wares since 1873, and the California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly SLO) Pier, part of the university’s marine research program.
