  • Front Street & the Boardwalk

    Front Street faces directly to the ocean, so it is a great place to take a walk and enjoy the ocean views on one side and see the shops and restaurants on the other side. The Boardwalk is new, made of concrete, not wood. It is wide and uncrowded, providing yet another way for you to relax and enjoy this quieter of California's coastal towns.

  • Avila Pier

    Avila Pier leads right out from the center of town. You can stroll to the end to watch surfers and get a good view of the beautiful coastline. This isn't a busy pier with shops and restaurants like in Santa Barbara, Monterey and San Francisco. More like the laid back atmosphere of the town and beach, it is a place to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere.

  • Fat Cats equals Fat Wallet

    Ok, this is your typical Breakfast old fashioned diner. Great breakfast but the prices we're on the tad ridiculous side. This is the 1st time I had to spend 20 bucks on a typical ham and egg breakfast. Crazy! Good location though, right on the harbor. Still silly prices though.
