Avila Beach’s Hidden Secrets

The Secret Garden

Hidden Gem Number One is the newest spot in town- the aptly named Secret Garden at Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort! Nestled in lush vegetation off the Bob Jones trail, this is just the place to kick back, grab a special drink and listen to live music, or simply relax. This oasis is accessible just over the green Sycamore Resort bridge, a three-minute walk from the main building or off of the Bob Jones Trail through the gate.
