As good as most pier fishing. Good lighting and restrooms. Depending on the current and tides this place can be OK to fish.

This is a great place to go after dinner. Nice and pretty and you get a good walk in. We like to watch our kiddos explore the water underneath...like an 'I SPY' adventure.

What a unique place to visit. You could see all kinds of sea life if you just wanted to hang out around the pier.

If you like walking over the water, admiring the water, watching others fish or enjoying a nice sunset, We spent a few hours surprisingly here after dusk watching the fishing, traffic over the bridge and the stars,,,

We ended our evening from the island here on the pier. If I remember correctly, our friend rented poles, and bought some bait. Had we been prepared, we would have brought an ice chest for fish caught, and one for snacks and drinks. (Check drink restrictions, I cannot remember?) Also, our own poles/bait. However, we were there when the sun... More

This is a great place for a scenic walk to watch the water and the people on the pier fishing. From the pier you can see South Padre Island. Worth checking out if you are in the area.
