I have been coming to the pier since I was a kid. The fishing is great, and the staff is very friendly.

We visited this pier on our trip to the Outer Banks... I have never seen a pier as "uneven" as this, but it was fun to walk on! You could definitely tell that it was not level - apparently a hurricane took part of it out a few years ago, so now it kind of goes uphill and a little... More

Each year we come we have to pay our dollar to go out and see how the pier has moved. It is never disappointing. The views are gorgeous. The folks in the store are great, always friendly. And they have some cute souvenirs you cant get elsewhere. This year the kids even got the extra treat of saying hi to... More

We stopped in to check out the pier and take some pictures of the sunset. The people in the store were very helpful and suggested where to take some sunrise pictures. We'll be back tomorrow to check out the pier itself during the daylight. For $1.00 you can walk the pier and if you choose to fish they will oblige... More

Admission as a non-fisher is only $1.00 making this an excellent activity for children to walk out and see people fishing as well as have the experience of walking over the waves.

This is a wonderful asset to Avon's sightseeing menu. My husband and I were there on a very windy day. It was breathtaking to feel the wind, watch the waves and see people fishing. I thought I saw a turtle swimming in the waves with water spouting from the center of its shell..it turned out to be an old pier... More

Even Siri had trouble finding this place. We don't fish, we just stopped to walk out on the pier on a cloudy day. It's worth the $1.00/person just to see this unusual pier. Gift shop has some good stuff for kids and the prices are very reasonable.
