Loved watching the dolphins below, nice place to take a long walk and people-watch, too. Lots of fisherman getting fresh catch and taking photos, many locals as well as tourists.

We are used to California, where the piers are pedestrian friendly and no cost. However, it's a great way to see what the catch of the day is, and have close ups of herons which are numerous. Great views of our hotel from the end of the pier. We also saw dolphins surface from our vantage point.

The pier charges for people just to walk the pier, but for small price more you can also fish without buying a fishing license. They also have poles and bait for not much more either. Enjoyed seeing dolphins, turtles, fish, and even a rather large solo hammer head shark.

Lucky to see some Dolphins passing by - there was nothing to dislike, even the weather was amazing the whole time we were there

Love going out on this pier, it is on $2 if you only want to walk, $8 if you want to fish, i think. We love to go out in the morning, watch the fishermen, see dolphins, sea turtles, stiingrays. Then we get a pass and come back in the evening for the sunset, beautiful.

The price to walk on the pier or fish are very reasonable. The view is amazing and there is plenty of room to fish or watch the action.

Such a cool place to visit. We walked the pier that was overlooking the beautiful blue, green water of the ocean. Dolphins were swimming,jumping up and playing around. Lots of people were fishing off the pier. Best 2 dollars we spent!

My family wanted to get out of our hotel one day and see some of the surrounding area (other than beach and pool in front of our hotel), so we headed down to the pier to check it out. Only cost 2 bucks per person to walk the pier, great sites, lots of people fishing, so you can cheer them... More

A must do at sunset, see gulls and dolphins close from shore. Many people were fishing as you can rent equipment

Beautiful pier overlooking the ocean. We could see it from the beach and we wanted so badly to go on it but couldn't figure out how to get to it. This is on our to do list for next time.
