We didn't fish off the pier but we walked all the way down and back. It was a nice pier and had lots of space if you wanted to fish. The nice thing about it is you didn't have to pay to walk out there like some piers do.

We always stop here to enjoy the pier, the beach, and the view. It is always uncrowded and we can easily access the beach. The pier store is helpful with public restrooms (can be used for changing). Would only recommend that they NOT run out of beach towels...had to run to another store.

This place just talks to me. I'm there and all is right with my world. Takes me back through the decades with that atmosphere I cherish from childhood. I return EVERY DAY of my week long visit to browse through the gift shop, have some ice cream and soak up what being at the beach is all about. AND I... More

The pier itself was OK. Didn't go out on it because I am terrified of this type thing. The pier "gift shop" was dirtier than I remember. Seems to be a lot of drifter type people hanging out. Their souveniers were over priced, dirty and dusty. Couldn't get out fast enough.

Take a walk on this pier 24 hrs a day. No charge to access the pier. Simply walk through the store. Fishing equipment is also available. The store sells ice cream, gifts and other miscellaneous things.

This is a great pier to go to, the store has everything you need, open 24 hours at certain times of the year. The Pier fishing is only $5 a person, they don't charge to park your car, if you you just want to take a walk on the pier there is no charge for that either. The staff is... More
