Our family loved walking up and down the pier, the kids loved the playground. The shops were very nice. We appreciated how clean everything was! Even though our visit was on a rainy weekend, we enjoyed the covered bench areas in front of the pier....More

Responsive fishing area, while popular, easily accessible but not overcrowded. Good for fishing, sunsets, beach access for beach walks, shops and dining, DIY BBQs nearby.

Walking on the pier there were plenty of fishermen. We did go out one morning and caught the sunrise (although it is blocked some by the island that juts out). Lots of people walking out here at all times of the day.

The pier wasn't very busy the day we were there. It is a great place for the kids to see the fisherman and their fish, along with the pelicans and other birds!

Very relaxing stroll down the pier out over the inlet waterway. Nice benches to sit on and gaze at the sun setting behind the bridge. Lovely place to meet new friends and get up close and personal to a pelican!

Nice pier; nice view. But lots of fishermen (and women) who seem to think they don't have to clean up after themselves, don't have to move themselves or their gear even slightly when they see you coming, etc. It's pretty much the same wherever you...More

This was my first time to the pier and it was gorgeous. The weather made it that much more enjoyable and there were not many people there, which was a plus!

The pier was full of fisherman casting their lines for a fresh fish meal. Not much but a view out there. Worth the short stroll on a nice day.

We stayed at a condo next to the pier. Almost any time of day you could look out and see dolphins. Lots of fishermen liked this area as well
