The island has many activities for everyone. The pier is really nice. Very big. For 2.00 you can stay as long as you like. We saw dolphin off the pier.

Paid the $2.00 to walk the pier. Was interesting watching people catch fish. Really was nothing else to it. We walked to the end of the pier and back. If you were going to fish off of the pier it might be worth the $8.00.

The pier is a great place to spend the afternoon. The beach is fantastic (and clean) and the Crab Trap is our favorite lunch spot in town. If you're in the mood to shop, there's numerous little shops to browse through as well.

We were surprised to be able to see so much marine life from the pier. Spotted several Dolphins, Rays, and sea turtles

The waves were really choppy when we went to the pier and the wind was really blowing hard so try not to go on a day that’s too windy. The atmosphere was nice and so was the view but there was so much bird poop!

The pier is very long and the scenery is beautiful! We enjoyed watching people fish. We watched a hammer head shark swimming. The pier has snacks, ice, and fishing gear and supplies.

Nice place to take a walk and view marine life. It was exciting to watch dolphins, different types of fish, a young shark as well as birds. There were lots of people busy fishing and their catches looked very pleasing. The pier is about 1/5...More

We wanted to go deep sea fishing but couldn't afford our family to all go, plus we knew our 8 yo and 11 yo would get bored, so fishing from the pier was a great alternative! We saw so many dolphins, a sea turtle, manta...More

We stayed in the island princess condos. Very nice condos except for the extremely slow elevators. You can see the pier but I think it's too far of a walk. We just drove to the pier. But I would recommend going to the pier... More
