Worth a stop, if you like fishing.

It's only $9 a person to go fishing on the pier and $1 for observers. They don't really monitor the observers during the off-season (winter), but they do for the fishing passes... read more

If you like to hear helicopters and planes flying over you and LOUD , then this is your beach. Very bad area to drive to as well with limited parking.

Make sure you take some cash with you when you walk the beach. Pier is 1$ for entry - kids were free (ages 2 and 4) Fun to watch the sharks come out from under the Pier when fishermen are cleaning their fish. Gift shop and restaurant. Clean washrooms. Saw a sea turtle last year under Pier which was pretty... More

I want to apologize for staying on the swing so long but no one seemed put out anyway. Best buck money can buy. Swing is now available.

This is a must watch where you get to relax on the benches of the pier as well as take a long walk on the clean beach next to the pier.

My nephews loved fishing from the Springmaid Pier when they were our guests 3 and 4 years ago (two separate families on 2 different Spring Break trips). They rented fishing tackle, bought bait and paid the daily $1 fee to walk out on the pier at the souvenir shop at the piers entrance. They each caught fish and yes, these... More
