The family vacation of your dreams begins at Avila Lighthouse Suites. Our resort offers guests an idyllic location, just steps away from the sandy shores of Avila Beach, perfect for playing in the sand, jumping in the water, or exploring tidepools with your little ones. Plenty of exciting, hands-on activities can be found across the Central Coast, so choose Avila Beach for your next family getaway for a memorable vacation that everyone will love. 


Family outings are easier than ever as coastal-themed activities can be found nearly anywhere along the shore, from boat tours and paddle-boarding to movie nights on the beach. A quick scenic drive away are hikes, rolling valleys and vineyards, which can be enjoyed by the entire family. Check out some of these popular destinations around the Central Coast to find out which activity suits your family best. 


Many different species call beautiful Avila Beach their home. We are fortunate to be located in an area with abundant wildlife so there are many ways you and the family can observe, encounter, and enjoy the adorable critters and creatures across the Central Coast. From the Elephant Seals in San Simeon, to the Emus at Avila Valley Barn, we invite you to explore some of our favorite animals that are native to San Luis Obispo county.
