“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

This is a great place to sit and watch the sunset or watch the cargo ships pass through. There is plenty of seating and shade for those that want to rest or escape the sun. There is a playground for children, and open grass area and tables to eat at and plenty of shopping right there.

bring your fishing poles and chairs and just enjoy the atmosphere, and view and hope for the fish to bite

“Big ships and fishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

The Fishing Pier on St. Simons is a must-do for any visit to the island. The area around the pier has been spruced up significantly since our last visit. Lots of benches to rest on for us oldsters and children. We didn't see anyone catch any fish but seeing the big cargo ships that go through the small channel at high tide more that made up for the lack of lucky fishermen. Definitely kid friendly with adult supervision with loads to do in the adjacent Pier Village.

“Family fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

It was interesting to walk along with loads of people fishing. The area surrounding the Pier is nice for families with a park, playground, restaurants etc.

“pier”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

There was nothing on the pier. I guess it was used for fishing only. But, there was no fishing store close by. The best thing was the LIGHTHOUSE was so close.
