One of the nicest piers I've been on. We fished off it for hours and amazingly, caught a lot of fish.

We visited the pier 3 times on our trip. We saw lots of marine life, sharks, dolphins, sting rays, and my 1st sea turtle. We enjoyed watching the vast array of fish being caught. It was also the perfect spot for family pics around 8pm.
