Soak up the sun on over 35 spectacular beaches.
The Avila Beach Hotel is centrally located in the Pietermaai District (near the mega pier) and features two private beaches. Both beaches are protected from the wind and large waves by offshore breakwaters and consequently offer calm water for visitors to enjoy.
The breakwaters make it especially ideal for small children to float in the calm ocean and for you to enjoy the turquoise waters or to discover the beautiful house reef while snorkeling. The palm trees that dot our white sandy beaches offer plenty of shade from the sun , and we offer parasols and palapas (similar to a small one pole tiki hut).
