Center Yourself With An Avila Beach Vacation

Center Yourself With An Avila Beach Vacation   by Robert Williams

An Avila Beach vacation is on the beach of California and a mostly sunny location is just what beach lovers need to make a beach getaway altogether perfect. Yes, even a colossal treasury of amusement like California features small pockets containing marvelous surprises adding beacons of joy to your California travels and Avila Beach is one such treasure which you should not miss.

The actual beach itself is approximately one half mile long in length and is sheltered by the San Luis Bay by Point San Luis which is inland and Fossil Point on the other side.

Due to its orientation on the seashore between Point San Luis and Fossil Point and since it faces a southerly direction, Avila beach enjoys the best weather on the central coast. This makes it the most warm of other beaches on this segment of the coast.

An Avila beach vacation would truly charm you in this matchless and beautiful town. There are many types of water sports open including of course surfing.
There are other things to do aside from laying on the beach all day in Avila Beach. Consider options other than your usual surfing, sunning, and fishing routine. There's the Marine Institute to discover about the native marine life close to Avila Beach. In addition you can also visit the Avila Wine Trail a welcome distraction from the ocean.

Another wonderful thing to do is have a soak in one of a handful of resorts offering healing mineral waters. Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort is one such establishment. This spa which is settled in the gorge between Avila Beach and Highway 101 taps into the spring in a nearby hillside which has been bubbling outward hot, healing waters ever since being found by oil men at the turn of the century. In case you want to lodge elsewhere, it is not essential to be a guest at the Sycamore to benefit from a blissful soak. A dozen or more hot tubs cling to the steep wood studded hillside and can be gotten to by paths and steps. Tubs can be rented by visitors for less than $50 for two for one hour.

Avila Beach is a smallish laid-back town in the middle of sloping hills with the additional attraction of restaurants on the pier. You can even lease a place to stay with local landlords for your Avila beach vacation if a hotel does not entice you.

The greater portion of the beach area is untouched but for a couple of blocks next to the beach that include a small residential area, some lodging, local stores and some newly built housing further away from the beach including a golf course.

On average weather differs little during the year ranging from 40s during the night to 60s days from late fall through winter and from 50s at night to 70s days from late Spring through September.

Are you seeking a simple decent beach vacation including friendly small town charm and history to boot? If yes then I am sure a Avila beach vacation is on the horizon for you and your loved ones.
