Nice location

This is a nice pier to just relax and enjoy the ocean view from a different perspective than the beach. It is nice to be out on the water and enjoy the sounds of the ocean.

Really like this pier, good for fishing and to walk on. There's even a swing to sit and enjoy the ocean. My biggest thing is when they charge for little kids to walk out on it. Come on that's crazy. Shame on u.

Growing up here in the summer with many childhood friends makes this place special to me! Perfect views in a "secluded" area of the beach! Nice for fishing and what-not!

Great views, costs money to park and to get onto the pier. Was hoping to see sharks in the water and the locals who were fishing say they are usually visible, but no luck.

With a 4 floor craft show, you have a lot to see. Wonderful to browse around and see all the fabulous crafts and ideas. spent about 2 and half hours there and could have stayed more. Only thing I wasn't pleased with was the $5 parking fee.

I always enjoy visiting The pier. My husband and I rented fishing gear and did catch some fish . It is very clean and wide enough to not bump into others. It has a couple of photo props so you can get a fun picture of the family.

You access the pier by walking between the gift shop and a small café. The pier seemed safe and was a good place to either look out on the ocean, watch others walk on the beach, fish, or bird-watch.
