Nestled in the hills of Avila we have this pretty stretch of beach. On of my favorite hangouts. Clothes optional! #Hiking along the coast of Avila Beach in California. While hiking in this area, BEWARE, because on your left from this spot, is the Nude Beach. Yup, it's the only nude beach that I know of that still exist in California. P.s. It was an accidental find for us, and no, we didn't go. #Waterlust #WeekendGetaway For your paddleboarding adventures! Beautiful place. Another beautiful shot at the beach, I just never tire of these sunny days on the Central Coast. This little town has been discovered. What was once a quaint, quiet place, is now a total tourist trap. Sad...but so beautiful. Avila. One of California's most secluded beaches: Avila Beach. Be sure to visit this quant beach community when in California's south central coast.

#California Shell Beach. This hidden gem can be accessed from the Cliffs Resort and Marisol parking lot (there are designated spots for beach parking). Spot some poppies while hiking months ago Great place for vacation. Stayed at la Fonda hotel. Very nice :-) Avila Beach Pier in a beautiful overcast sky morning.
#avilabeach #california #pier #beach Really cool run on the bluffs between Pismo and Avila! A view of Avila from the ridge. Happy Earth Day. Overlooking Shell Beach from the ridge.
Beautiful! A must if your looking for a good day hike. A bit strenuous but possible! I'm sorry but I'm just in love with this trail. Massive tree that eroded off of the cliff and onto Shell Beach due to the intense rainfall the state had this season! Here is the hotel. Had great reviews from trip advisor and it was spot on. Enjoyed the experience and rooms were nice. :-) coming back again to really explore the area. Soak in the Mineral bath all day if needed. I do! Eases the stress and relived joint pain. The cool thing about this place...open year round and if you go early, the place is all yours basically. We took an early morning walk on the paths to a small cave. We also saw seals lounging on rocks. A small cave at the top of a path. There were beer bottles (neatly stacked) and evidence of bonfires. I could hanging out here. Yummy treats for the weary tracker. As for me, I'm a local and just KRAVE A BOWL! Love the view from up the stairs. Here is the hotel. Had great reviews from trip advisor and it was spot on.
