Let's Save Avila Pier!

Friends of Avila Pier (FOAP), Inc. is a a 501(c)(3) organization that was formed by volunteers from the Avila Beach community for the sole purpose of assisting in the raising of funds to maintain, renovate and preserve Avila Pier. Port San Luis Harbor District has revised a repair bill for the Avila Pier and we need to raise $1m from our amazing community to ensure that we can repair and preserve the marine heritage and character of the local port for future generations.

Why save the pier?

COMMUNITY

The Avila Pier brings us together and gives us a place to share with our residents and tourists.

RECREATION

Let’s bring back whale watching, fishing, crabbing, and all the recreation that the pier provides, plus the young lifegaurds have to jump off something!

HISTORY

Built in 1907, the pier has been an integral landmark for our community over the last 100 years.

YOUTH

Our community has always shared a love for the ocean and we should be able to share it with future generations.
