The pier is absolutely beautiful. We aren't fishers but loved being about to walk so far out and enjoy the views. Lots of places to sit. Very clean. The staff was very warm and friendly. Substantial parking too.

We just wanted to walk out on the pier with our little dog to take int he scenery. Not only do they not allow dogs, you have to pay to walk the pier...$2 per person. If you want to fish, it costs $12 a day. it is a shame that a family cannot walk out on the pier without paying.

Being from Florida we had a level of pier expectation and this place exceeded our expectations. It is wide and has wonderful benches and fish cleaning tables- complete with diagrams showing you how to clean fish. The price for a walk was $2 per person and worth it for views of the beach. There are windmills on the pier that... More

We recently toured Jennette's Pier during a weekday, when it was 34 degrees, and the wind was howling. Yes, it was quite cold, and we had the pier to ourselves, except for a couple of bird watchers that were dressed like eskimos. I'll have to say, they were DEDICATED to their hobby. The employees were very friendly, and the gift... More

I normally hang out on the beach at a different location in the summer since it's close to home. But every now and then we load the truck up and hang out at Jennette's Pier. It feels like we are on a baby vacation. The pier is wonderful. It's only two dollars to enter the pier. Walk to the end... More

The appeal of getting offshore if only even a few hundred feet is paramount and numerous piers on the Outer Banks are evidence of our desire to keep our feet dry yet be out there on the end of a pier fishing or just breathing the sea air. A friendly bunch of folks on these piers who will be happy... More

We traveled during off season and decided to stop to check out the rebuild pier. $2 per adult for an all day accessible pass to the pier. Which in good weather is awesome as you have a great vantage point of beach activities, pier fishing, and watching marine life. When we went it was unseasonably colder, but still went out... More

Took a walk on the pier in 25 degree weather, and it was still enjoyable! Well maintained, has a small gift shop to buy souvenirs.
