As you stand at Avila Beach and gaze west, there is another pier and place called San Luis Bay. Beaches, sunbathing, a public launch ramp, day fishing trips and several restaurants where you can dine in or take home seafood are what you'll find in the bend in the road a stone's throw away. 

On one of our visits, we noticed that Olde Port Inn on Harford Pier was rated one of the top ten seafood restaurants in California. A menu with over 15 varieties of seafood dishes, Butterfinger Ice Cream Pie, hamburgers and affordable prices beginning at $5.95 make this a great choice for ocean view dining. When we ate there, we sat a really cool table which was sealed but had mirrors reflecting the water from the pier below so that you could see the ocean underneath you while dining. Is than not amazing?   Phone (805) 595-2515


Sea lions love it in the bay. They used to hang out on a ramp leading to several boats, but have been relocated on a platform under the pier. That's where they wait for the fisherman to come in with their catch of the day.


When you stay at one of the Avila Beach Hotels such as the San Luis Bay Inn  hotel on the hill that overlooks 3 piers, Avila, a private oil company pier and Port San Luis Wharf, you can walk to both beaches.
