“It's a pier”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

It's a pier. Pretty views, and right at the lighthouse and Pier Village, so if you are there, just go to say you went.

“Go for the sunset”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The sunset was really nice. There was not much to do, but watch the sunset. The kiddie pool area near the pier is closed, there is a nice playground and putt putt golf.

“Nice to stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I've been to this pier multiple times. It was nice to people watch. The water was creepy at high tide & at night...lol. I would say the best part is not the pier itself but the park, shops, bars, restaurant's, miniature golf, light house, tented vendors, strolling the village, and site seeing. My favorite thing to do is get take out from Barbra Jean's and walk over to the open court yard with the big oak tree. I like sitting in the white rocking chairs eating the cobbler of the day enjoying the breeze. I wouldn't recommend sitting at the tables without being on high alert for feeding birds and bird poop from above! I've visited this place multiple times since 2008.

“Place to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Very well maintained & clean. People very nice. Fun watching people fish, or just stroll along watch the sunset. Can even watch the big ships from Brunswick hauling autos from all over the world. Escorted by local Pilots 12 miles out to sea, then the Pilot returns to the pier, by a special "Pilot boat", & unloads up the ladder to the pier & his job is done for the day!
