“Great fishing pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

My husband loves this place for the fishing.
It's also a scenic place to view the rugged surf just a few miles north of Cape Hatteras. Good place to watch the surfers.

“Worth the $1 to see this!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is a most interesting pier. The board roll and undulate and you wonder how it can still be standing. We were there on a very windy day with rough seas and we didn't stay long since we weren't sure how much the pier could take. If you are in the area, it's worth a stop to see it.

“Good souvenirs. Nice little pitch and putt course. Good, active, fishing pier.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We go to Avon Pier every year for a walk out and ice cream plus whatever souvenirs we need for house sitters, etc. Its a clean, well stocked establishment and never disappoints with cool t-shirts and fun, beach themed kitchen kitch. LOVE IT!

“Fun, but don't forget your wallet. They charge admission to walk on the pier.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Interesting, but charging people to stands on the pier is rude. Fine, have a donation box or something like that, but admission feels wrong. Kind of ruins it...

“Nice walk.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

The pier was interesting. There were many people fishing and sightseeing. We went there in the evening for a break from the kids and enjoyed walking out onto the water. We were pretty amazed at the beach erosion and drop off into the water however.
