Our family enjoyed a nice quick walk to the end of the pier to check it out and take in more great OBX views. Pier dotted with fishermen and some photogs. $1/pp to sightsee worth it.Then walked to beach below to see more views and ghost crabs. Wouldn't make a day trip out of it but a great local spot...

My family and I stayed at the Koru Village Villas in July and my kids were obsessed with the Avon Fishing Pier. We got free fishing passes when we stayed with Koru Village, and the staff was so helpful in teaching my kids how to fish and giving them pointers. My kids even participated in their weekly "Kids Fishing Frenzy... More

We stopped here on our vacation to check out the pier. Lots of fishermen, of course but the view was gorgeous!! Liked talking to the fishermen and hearing their stories!! Nice little shop before you went out on the pier with a little bit of everything. Great sightseeing!!! Loved it!!!

To walk on the pier cost $1.00. It is obviously very old and has had a lot of repairs. It is an impressive landmark. There are a lot of people fishing on pier. Nothing much to do if you aren't fishing.

We had a great visit to the Avon Pier during our recent trip to Koru Village! As guest at Koru, it is free to visit otherwise it is only $1. Our visit coincided with the recent shark activity so people seemed interested in seeing if one could be spotted. Fortunately there were no shark sightings but we did watch an... More

Not familiar with the area....we did our grocery shopping in the town. We were staying in Rodanthe. Avon is the only place with fireworks. They did it by the pier and we just followed the crowd. We ended up by the beach right by the pier. Great fireworks display! Good family affair! The experience was relaxing being from a big... More

Awful waste of time. Pier is old and falling apart. Mini golf is a joke-just a big putting green with grass way too long. Tavern food is gross and overpriced. Avoid this place.

We spent a dollar in the bait shop to walk out onto the pier, which helps pay for the upkeep (and periodic replacement) of the structure. It was a windy evening and the pier trembled and rocked on it's rickety-looking legs. There were probably about 100 anglers fishing from the sides and the end. The view was lovely. Keep an... More
