The Avon Pier is a cool and quirky place to visit. It's worth $1 to walk out on a pier that's been damaged by hurricanes. I didn't go there to fish, but my dad and 14yo nephew did, and they had fun. They caught 5 fish in a couple of hours during the day, but the fish were too small... More

My wife have been here quite few times. The owner is nice and knowledgeable about the area and fishing. The most disappointing thing is see some worker cutting a barb off a baby stingray and throw it back (which is probably now shark bait now). So don't ruin such a good place.

The view is great......Maybe the latest hurricane damaged the pier or maybe it is always like that but walking out was a bit scary. The majority of it was crooked and slanted so much that a few of the members of our party had to walk back to the main store/gift shop and couldn't enjoy the pier. It seemed as... More

Probably the best $2 you can spend - tour the pier - get great views, watch some fishermen and you can also get a cold PBR with a cushioned coozie for $1 - great place to go at night after dinner!

My son and I wanted to do a little ocean fishing but I was afraid it would be too expensive. I checked out the Avon pier. We were staying in Hatteras Village, so it was a short drive. The prices were fair, we didn't need tackle or a license. Our equipment rental included shrimp as bait. The pier is nice... More

A walk on the Avon Pier is a truly amazing experience. There's nothing quite like it. Weathered by storms, it's anything but straight or level. And that's the appeal. The people working the office/tackle shop are always friendly and helpful. We've never fished off the pier, but we always take a walk on it when we visit the island. I... More
