We’re rebranding to Enjoy Avila Beach

We’re rebranding to Enjoy Avila Beach

When I started working on this website 6 years ago, the idea was to showcase the activities around downtown Avila Beach and bring more of the locals out to enjoy the beautiful offseason. Since all the activities were centered around the Avila Pier & Promenade we decided to go with the domain name www.AvilaBeachPier.com. We started out with just a few sponsors (Wave Jammers, Mr. Ricks, and the Custom House) and launched the website Jan 1st, 2009. Almost right off the bat we started receiving phone calls and lots of emails with questions concerning things all over Avila Beach, the Port San Luis Harbor and the whole Avila Valley. In no time at all, we added more information and the most common questions to the website. By the end of 2009 we had changed the whole website to incorporate all of Avila Beach and had over 30 business from the Avila Hot Springs in the Avila Valley to the Olde Port Inn on the end of the Harford pier supporting...

Welcome to our NEW blog!

Welcome to our NEW blog!

Welcome to the new blog for Avila Beach, California. We have been blogging for the last few years over on our website (AvilaBeachPier.com) but we have been on hiatus after an incident in December where our database got corrupted. Since we really wanted to post a lot more this year, we decided to start from scratch and give the blog a fresh start. We added plenty of new features and incorporated the most popular ideas that people requested. We also made the new blog responsive so that it’s optimized for all screen sizes and mobile & tablet devices. So no matter where you are in the world, you can always stay connected to Avila Beach, California. Here are some of the new posts & ideas you can look forward to seeing in 2013. If you have a good idea, want to see something specific, or would like to contribute something to our blog, please email Jay Olson at Jay@AvilaBeachPier.com The People of Avila Beach – Every month (or two) we will be highlighting a different Avila local. There are so many wonderful people...

Our Facebook page got an upgrade to the new timeline

Our Facebook page got an upgrade to the new timeline

On February 29th, Facebook announced that business pages will be upgraded to the new timeline format by the end of March. We looked over the new features and decided to upgrade immediately to take advantage of some of  these features. However we understand this is new to a lot of people and we would like to make sure that everyone understands our new page. We took a snapshot of our page and made a guide for you. Please note that it’s going to look slightly different for you but the basic layout will be the same. 1. Cover Photo – This is the second most important reason we switched over to Timeline. We have thousands of great Avila Beach pictures that we want to share with you and we feel this is the perfect way. We will be changing this photo at least once a day but sometimes twice or three times a day to reflect the current happenings in Avila Beach! Make sure to check back often to see many different pictures of...

Avila Beach in 2012! New businesses and more!

Avila Beach in 2012! New businesses and more!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a Happy New Year! I am really excited about all the fun things and new memories that we are going to have this year in Avila Beach, California. Last year was a really busy year for all of us here at AvilaBeachPier.com. We took on a lot more responsibility and did our best to make Avila a better place for everyone. The only thing I regret not doing was not organizing more beach cleanup days. A mistake I plan to change in 2012. I am thinking a small team of dedicated locals the meet up and clean the beaches and around town. I am sure I could convince a few of the restaurants to buy lunch for the group. If anyone or any business would like to help with beach cleanup days please feel free to email me at Jay@avilabeachpier.com.   Avila Beach went through some changes this past year and now has a handful of new businesses. This Little Fishy (Children’s Beach Boutique) –...

Website Themes & Halloween

Website Themes & Halloween

The holidays are coming up fast! When I launched the new website this summer, I added a new feature. I can decorate the website in different themes and it will automatically change depending on the date and time that you view the site. So for example as of yesterday our website www.AvilaBeachPier.com got some Halloween decorations on it and they will be removed the morning after Halloween. I am currently working on themes for Thanksgiving and Christmas and have plans for many others. My goal down the road is to have many themes for holidays, events and even the weather. In the future I want you to look at our website and already feel apart of Avila Beach… Because I know you are just going to LOVE it! Make sure to check out our website at www.AvilaBeachPier.com or our facebook...
