Long Description:
This lesser-known little stretch of sand nearly disappears at very high tides, but it is a great swimming beach with little or no wave action. Don't expect to catch the Last Great Wave here, but do bring along some hotdogs and firewood for an evening blaze. Fires are permitted in the heavy steel fire rings provided.

This is a favorite for college kids, and adults. Dogs can run free, it is well protected from the passing road way. Avila always seems to have the best weather of any of the beaches on the central coast. A great little micro climate that makes for a great day at the beach.

Coordinates are for the boat ramp entrance to the beach and located near the rest rooms.
