parking, showers, easy access to beach and shops, there are also lots of restaurants near by. i have lived here all my life and have always gone here myself or with my family. it does get crowed during spring break but the rest of the year you can find a good spot right by the water.

Great Fishing for the kids, keep them away from end where the Pro's are. Go to the bait shop and rent the rods and reels if you don't have any.

One of the best fishing places I've ever been to. The staff is friendly and helpful. I got a 36 pound King Mackerel last year.

The pier reaches 1/4 mile out into the ocean and is a great spot to experience the ocean far out. You have a perspective of the shoreline like no other. Enjoyed the beautiful blue of the water the day we went there. Several people fishing. We paid $3. for a one time entrance but if you are staying in the... More

This is great for parking at Pier Park and just walking out on the pier. The fishing is good. No license required. You can rent fishing poles and buy bait at the Half-Hitch store next to the pier.

Whether fishing or just walking the pier, this is a great place to fish or hang out. At night the shark fishermen are out and if you want an adrenaline rush, just hang out and hope they hook up!

Very nice pier. Clean restrooms before entering, great views, and pier was cleaner than some I have been on. Thought it was a little higher priced for a pier, but would still go again.

The pier is beautiful and is a place you definitely need to visit if you're in the area. It has amazing views and is a great place to walk around, take pictures, and relax. There is an entry fee, but it's worth it. This was one of my favorite stops from our vacation.

This is one of the nicest piers I have been on, worth the $3 to visit. Went out early one morning and lot of people already fishing. Next day went out in the evening to enjoy the sunset and it was beautiful. Did not see many fish being caught but the people fishing were very friendly. A must visit while... More
