“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We were surprised that the tide was so high we could not walk on the sand. We did see some one catch a really really big mouthed fish! We saw boats coming in and out. Rest and peaceful. And very friendly people.

“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

So much fun to walk this pier during the day to see the people fishing or simply relax on one of the benchs. I was so relaxed I fell asleep once, what a place to nap with all the wonderful sights and sounds. I must do romantic walk at night!

“Fun and free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We walked out on the pier to see who was fishing. There were several groups fishing for various things. We saw a leopard ray. It affords a nice view of the coastline.

“A must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We walked down to the fishing pier from the lighthouse and museum one evening. The pier and sidewalks were all lighted well and gorgeous in the evening time. I got some great pictures. There were people fishing, which was fun to watch, and you get a great view of ships going by from the end of the pier. Don't forget to turn back to the lighthouse from the pier to get a great pic!

“Beautiful View of the Sound and Jekyll Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

The pier at Saint Simon's Island is very clean, well lit at night and offers stunning views of the sound, the light house and Jekyll Island. A very short walk (about 100 yds or less) from the restaurants and shops.
