How to Spend Father’s Day in Avila Beach
Avila Beach is the perfect place to treat dad on Father’s Day.. and there’s something for everyone to enjoy! Here are some great Avila Beach gift ideas that are sure to make his day special in every way:
Try your hand at Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) or rent kayaks from Avila Beach Paddlesports. You can paddle around the bay or even take a visit to the Point San Luis Lighthouse!
Grab your bikes and take the Bob Jones trail into Avila Beach! The Bob Jones Trail is the “City to the Sea” bike trail. Used as a hiking, jogging and biking route, the paved trail winds through the forested valley alongside San Luis Obispo Creek towards Avila Beach. From the trail are views of bridges spanning the wide creek, the Avila Beach Golf Course, the town of Avila and the Pacific Ocean.
Nestled beneath the sheltering hills of Point San Luis and the Avila lighthouse, the Avila Wine Trail features family-owned and operated wine venues offering award-winning vintages that capture the essence of wine making on the Central Coast. From walkable downtown & beachfront wine tasting rooms to the See Canyon and Avila Valley wineries just five minutes from the beach, one thing is consistent – the focus on making your Central Coast wine tasting tour fun and enjoyable.
Take him fishing – the Central Coast is considered to be some of the best rockfish territory on the west coast. Or, head out on a whale-watching/sailing trip! If whale watching is what you are here for, there is an excellent chance of spotting grey and humpback whales up close throughout the year. Humpback whales come to the Central Coast every summer to feed on huge schools of sardines and anchovies and stay through late fall.
