Situated at the northern end of the " Seven Mile Beach
Island ." Avalon extends eastward one mile further
into the ocean than its neighboring resorts and has given
itself the motto "Cooler by a Mile." Beach and water
activities highlight the daytime pleasures of an Avalon
vacation. This beachfront community is dotted with distinctive
homes and beach cottages and hosts hundreds of brightly
colored sailboats, sleek motor boats and comfortable yachts
during the summer months. Some of the finest accommodations are
found on this island resort. Visitors return to Avalon
throughout both the summer and quiet seasons for peaceful
and relaxing vacations. Beautiful beaches and gentle surf
combine with fine shopping, exquisite restaurants and
exciting nightclubs for a great vacation escape.
The "high dunes" of Avalon have
been carefully preserved over the years. These dunes create
a beautiful, natural setting for the beaches and protect
them as well, from storm erosion. Walkways have been erected
at the street ends to allow access to the beach. The dune
areas of the beach are covered with natural foliage and
plant life indigenous to the area.
At one time, all the
beaches along the coast were covered with the same foliage
as that found along the Avalon beaches. The residents
of Avalon are also proud of their public parks and playgrounds.
Beautifully maintained by the residents, these parks offer
a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle usually
associated with an action-packed vacation.
Fishing boats line the back bay area.
The Avalon Sport Fishing Center , located at the northern
end of the resort, between 15th and 16th streets at the
bay, is headquarters for large fleet of charter and head
boats. Situated at the southern end of Avalon at 54th and
the bay is the Bay Park Marina with a municipal boat ramp
and slips. Charter, party and private boats leave daily
, for the easily accessible back bay, ocean and canyon fishing
areas. You can also fish from the surf, jetties and piers
throughout this resort community.
