A lovely pier. Great to watch the sunset over the water. Listening to the waves roll in and crash on shore was mesmerizing. I would suggest a visit . My time watching gulls and pelicans was well worth the visit.

Two dollar fee to go on the pier. Often you can look over the sides and see various fish and stingrays, jelly fish in the water. Lots of fishermen up and down the pier reeling in different fish to see. Nice place to just walk out and enjoy the views and the fun of being on the water. Something I... More

We were killing time waiting on the sun to set and decided to walk the pier. It's a great place to take pics of the sunset. Also you never know what you are going to see in the water below you. We saw a huge sea turtle and dolphin swimming near the pier. I would recommend going here if you... More

Love to walk the pier on a daily basis, I seem to always see new sea life every walk. Always fun to watch the fishermen and how they interact. Love the views and great to go out after or before a good rain . Also the cost is $2.00 per person to walk the pier.

We spent the day at the beach here, and after reading the reviews, we knew that we wanted to pay the $2 to go on the pier, and even try our hand at fishing. This was a fun and inexpensive way to enjoy the ocean, and to try something new. We didn't catch anything, but still really enjoyed it. The... More

We took the kids here during our week-long stay. They enjoyed watching the fishermen/women and seeing their catches. They got to see a stingray, King Mackerel, and a few other types of marine life. They were hoping to see sharks, but didn't get the chance this time. It was well worth the $2 per person to walk out on the... More

Took a walk out here with my son and wife. $2 per person to walk it if I remember correctly. It was a nice view and neat to watch all the people fishing, unfortunately no one was bringing anything in when we were there. The large bird just walking the pier waiting for food was interesting, he didn't fear anyone... More

This was ok. We were at the beach there, so figured we might as well pay the $2.00 per person and walk the pier. Nothing special on it, but you do get GREAT views of the pretty green water and we did see a stingray swimming along while out on it. It also has bathrooms you can use.
