Cool breeze, cold drink and some snacks and I am ready for a day of fishing. Life doesn't get much better than this. After a cold winter, it's a great way to spend your vacation.

While staying next door came here every evening. Very entertaining to watch fishermen and talk to them about what fish are biting.

Older of the piers,but they have made some improvements.For a couple of bucks you take a leisurely walk on the pier,watch the ocean and check out the days catches.Always some fishermen some good and some novices on vacation,but a good time for all.

Wonderful visit, a great place. You can't get out over the water except at a couple places on OBX. We recommend this pier.
