Book your Avila Beach stay today!

Don't be fooled by our sexy logo or live bluegrass music, fresh hometown BBQ, ice cold beer and great race swag. This race will take you over wild undiscovered territories along the majestic California coastline where it's rough, it's rugged, and it's dirty. In private Wild Cherry Canyon you will have to dig deep to earn that sweet medal and hot cherry pie.

Pick your perfect training ground in Avila Beach. There are miles of both scenic and challenging bike paths and trails, clean pure ocean waters to swim and miles of outdoor running along the beach or into pristine oak laden canyons. Whether you want to just enjoy a day in nature or go for a month long training regime, Avila Beach offers it all. And after a day of training there are many ways to relax too. You'll enjoy natural mineral spas, local wine tasting in town, fresh seafood at one of our many restaurants along with wonderful accommodations where you can restore and relax.

Enjoy the friendliest climate on California’s Central Coast along the sparkling Pacific that’s so easy to reach right between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Bask in a warm sunny microclimate and stroll on our beautiful, pet friendly beaches. Swim, surf, sail and kayak the harbor with sea lions, otters, pelicans and other beautiful creatures. Taste locally produced award-winning wines in our downtown tasting rooms and at wineries throughout the Avila Valley. Pick some of California’s best apples at our See Canyon Orchards and experience the harvest at our local farms. Surround yourself with world-class amenities, great hotels, vacation rentals, restaurants, boutiques and shops.
