Nice place

It's a nice place to walk out over the water. People are fishing from the pier, but I won't be back because you have to pay to walk out there in the heat.

This is a great spot for an evening stroll for an hour or so before beautiful sunset. Many colorful people fishing and catching mackerel and red fish. Every now and then a shark gets hooked and then it can be 15 or 20 minutes of action until the shark is brought to the base of the pier and the line... More

We had the best time on the pier! We watched fishermen catch 2 small sharks, learned about sea turtles, and a pelican decided to follow us around for 30 minutes. Beautiful views! A must for visitors, so glad we decided to walk the pier!

We were there about 5pm, and the fishing was... More

This pier is used mostly for fishing, so do not be alarmed at all of the dead and "chopped up" fish all over the rails. Fisherman use these as bait but many of the fisherman leave the bait there after they leave. (translates to: do not put your hands on the rails without looking very closely first!) It was fun...

We didn't go out on the pier (fee), but you can access the restrooms without going out on the pier. The beach around the pier is great, very nice sand, not too crowded, and you have wash areas to get the sand off. We really had a nice time here, and there is shade from the pier if you want...

Anyone who visits our area should absolutely make the pier part of their trip. Whether you're going out to do some fishing or just sightseeing and enjoying the dolphin shows you can see from the pier, I highly recommend you check it out. Great place to meet some really fun locals too! My family loves the pier and make it... More

We loved this pier. Sure there is a fee, but it does keep it well kept. We came here almost every night. The fisherman were friendly and entertaining. We even sat on a bench for some relaxing views. Our kids loved the different types of fish being brought up. We hung out by where they would clean the fish and... More
