Fun place for the family, offers great views of the beach. while we were out fishing on the pier we saw a group of jelly fish of about 50 . it was really fun for the kids. The bathrooms at the end are nothing fancy but are pretty clean.

The pier seems to be in state of reoair and by its appearance, much needed! Beautiful views but...there are other areas more attractive.

I guess if you want to fish, it's worth paying to walk on the pier. There are six of us, and we opted to spend the $12 on something else since we weren't fishing. We did play in the water under the pier and got some fun pics.

$2 per person for a walk out a nondescript pier. Unless you brought a pole, there's really no reason to walk out to the end.

There was a charge of two dollars just to walk out to the end of the pier. We did see Dolphins from the pier.

you had to pay to walk all the way out on the pier, so we opted not to. you spend enough money on vacation without these additional fees.

For $2, you can walk on the pier and see fishermen hopefully catching a variety of fish. Sometimes you can see a pod of dolphins, schools of fish, stingrays, and a variety of sea life. Of course there is no guarantee you will see anything other than the emerald green water and waves, but it's still fun to walk the... More

We paid the two bucks each to walk along the pier at sunset and saw lots of wildlife! Turtles, pelicans and king mackerel fish to be exact! We went at dusk when all the fish and fishermen were out but it was still a really nice stroll. The sunset was lovely! Well worth $4 we plan on coming back to... More
