Avila Beach City Beach

Just off Highway 101 through a lush oak valley, you will find Avila Beach City Beach. Avila Beach City Beach takes up the entire waterfront of the town of Avila Beach, CA. This fresh, welcoming beach features a beautiful pier and many beachfront shops, charming oceanfront restaurants, and activities for all to enjoy. The picturesque wooden Avila Pier can be seen at the center of City Beach in Avila Beach.

The Avila Beach City Beach is family friendly, with lifeguard towers and plenty of space to throw out your towel and relax. Showers, bathrooms, picnic tables, and a playground are also accessible for public use. If you want to fish, you can do some from the Avila Pier without a fishing license. Dogs are permitted on the beach–on or off leash–with supervision, before 10am and after 5pm only.

Plan your trip with Santa Maria Valley as your home base. From wine tastings and family-friendly events to live music, you can eat, drink and do more for less #SantaMariaStyle. Take a day trip from Santa Maria to Avila Beach City Beach and enjoy local shops, unique attractions, and wine tasting.
