I enjoy fishing from the pier. There is a nice variety of fish to be caught. If you need bait, tackle, rods, reels, or help with fishing information, the people who work here have all been very friendly and helpful. There is also coffee, drinks, and snacks to be had if you get hungry or thirsty. What's really neat about... More

It costs a dollar to go look at the view from the pier but the view is free from down on the beach. If you have never walked out on a long pier, want a view from up high then it's well worth it.

Avon Pier... what to say if you're not a fisherman? Well, the pier juts way out into the Atlantic and kids will have a ball going out if only for the experience of looking over the railing and seeing nothing but water and --maybe-- dolphins. If you're familiar with fishing piers, this is just another one, but if you've never... More

Great deal if you wanna fish off the pier but I would have to say they can be kind of rude sometimes I've been coming down to Avon since I was born and they just hate tourists .. but still a great place to hang out on the beach or fish !

We are staying across the street from the pier, so we walked over to take some pictures. It's a great place to take photos (and fish, of course) We were fortunate to see a whale and dolphins. I just wish I had my long lens on my camera, with me. It cost us a $1 each to walk out on... More

Jarts right out into the Atlantic ocean, Laid back and a real must do when in the area! You can fish right off the pier for a ten dollar bill, they even have fishing poles and bait.

This pier is unique in that it is the most wavy pier I ever walked upon. I believe it is due to repairs after the last hurricane. It does have railings but it also has dips and twists. Still it is fun to walk on which you can do for $1 and check out the waves and wind and people... More

We recently traveled to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and enjoyed Cape Hatteras as well as nearby Kitty Hawk (had to get some education in for the kids!) Avon Pier was just a great experience. good fishing and the staff was fun and very accommodating. The pier itself is quite a site as it has endured several storms and... More

Funny house feeling walking out on fishing pier, otherwise clean and staff friendly, plenty of parking. Easy to get to. Breezy even when not windy onshore.
