The Inn at Avila Beach

the water

You’re vacationing to the beach. You need some water adventure in your life.


Say hello to Avila Beach Paddlesports. Kayaks, standup paddleboards, secret adventure tours to Point San Luis, oh my! For the ultimate water experience, be sure to explore Avila by water. We recommend the Adventure Tour to the Point San Luis Lighthouse! You can only reach it by trolley or water…now that is an adventure.

We know you’re going to have a whale of a time while staying with us, but what about checking out a real whale? Like a real, real one. Not like Sea World. One actually up close and loving their natural environment.

Well you need to speed dial Central Coast Charters to book your adventure. Captain Marc will navigate you through Avila’s waters, tell you some of the most interesting Avila history (ask about the Jones Family that used to live on the large rock out by the jetty), and not to mention, those whale sightings! Grab your camera with a hand strap, because you’re not going to want to miss this one.


Want the local experience? Lookin’ to catch some dinner for grilling up on our sundeck? Reserve your spot with Patriot Sportfishing for a half or full day out to sea.

If you don’t feel like fishing yourself, you can just buy some from BJ’s Live Seafood, located on the Hartford Pier. This outside market, consisting entirely of fish tanks is a site to see. Grab a few fillets for grilling up on our sundeck. Just be sure to grab enough for us.
