The pier is just a pier. But it is clean and does not smell. Lots of fisherman. Great views of the beach. Wear polarized sunglasses and you can see fish, dolphins and even jellyfish.

We love waking the pier! We do it each time we visit P. Beach! The view is spectacular! Love seeing the families out for a day of fishing.

Awesome place to take the kids, family or just go for a romantic walk along the beach! The beautiful white sand and stunning beaches make for an awesome day! Life Guards are plentiful and very watchful, so you can take your children and feel comfortable. The pier is fun - not something you come across every day! You can also... More

The waves were nice. The crowd was not to large and you had plenty of space to swim. Parking was easy and close to the breach. I look forward to swimming here again.

Lovely beach with a long,sturdy pier. Great place to watch the sunrise/sunset. There are also lots of people who fish from the pier. Not sure what they catch!

Beautiful pier. Great fishing and you can rent fishing gear after buying a license. The staff are very friendly at the pier. I went during the winter and it was just as beautiful as ever.

The beach is always too crowded and the traffic in the afternoons is bumper to bumper trying to get out of there but still, all in all it isn't a BAD place...I just suggest going on a weekday because weekends the place is packed.
