Avila BeachRefreshingly unpretentious... Whatever you chose to do during your stay at Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort & Spa, there’s one thing you just shouldn’t miss ~ Avila Beach! Seriously. Even if you only have time for a quick drive by, the view alone will make the trip worthwhile.
The sunny and quaint community of Avila Beach is likely the most significant contribution to what gives San Luis Obispo its title as “the happiest city in America” by author and researcher Dan Buettner. This half-mile stretch of white sand beach is nestled in a cove, located just south of Port San Luis, protected from coastal winds, making it the warmest of the central coast beaches.
For visitors and locals alike, Avila Beach is a favorite spot to go for a walk, a ride, a roll, a stroll, a surf, a shop, a fish, a beer or a bite to eat. It’s refreshingly unpretentious, with an old-school beach town California culture. Learn more...
