Avila Beach Pirate Cove

Avila Beach 

Avila Beach is located approximately 3 hours North of Los Angeles just off the 101. In truth, its just a sleepy little hamlet situated at the mouth of San Luis Obispo Bay. It's like The Shire with an amazing beach. The town is mostly filled with wealthy retired people and the kind of little arts and crafts stores that your grandmal would love. Pets are allowed on the main beach, and someone in Avila must make a fortune selling poodles to the old folks because I saw at least 100 of them racing around on the sand. Avila has another beach located just South of town on the other side of the bluff. Its easily one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen in my life. Its a pristine undeveloped area teaming with sea lions, exotic birds, and giant acorn trees. The huge rock outcropping offers a panoramic view of the entire bay. With a little exploring, you'll find a giant pirate cove and several natural arches. The hidden cove at Avila is historically a nude beach, but we didn't actually see anyone in the buff. If you're headed North to Big Sur, I would definitely recommend taking a 2 hour detour to check out Avila. You may end up retiring there one day. To access the Pirate Cove, take the Avila Beach Drive exit off route 101 and follow it for approximately 2 miles before turning left onto Cave Landing Road. Follow Cave Landing Road for about a mile uphill until you hit the dirt parking lot. The pirate cove is located under the rock outcropping on the bluff.
