We've been enjoying walks down the pier for more than a decade, and vacation just wouldn't be complete without it. If you go during a clear, hot day, make sure to wear lots of sunscreen, as you're subject to the heat of the sun and...More

I don't know if we were just lucky, but we've never seen so much sea life off one pier. We saw 3 sea turtles, some pretty big sharks, and countless fish and jellyfish. That's all aside from the decent view and the insignificant price ($1...More

We go to pier every time we visit here it’s relaxing at night when sun goes down just to unwind and watch the moonlight shine on water at piers

We Love walking the pier in the mornings with a cup of coffee. It's always fun to talk to the people fishing. This trip we saw sharks, sea turtles and dolphins up close, from the pier. It's a $1.25 per person, but always worth it.

Walked down the pier and ate some ice creme, watching the people and swimmers. Clean area and a nice place to go after lunch to chill and enjoy the ocean.

Not much to it except enjoying the view or fishing. Great place to just relax. May be too crowded in mid summer season to catch many fish but still cool anyways.

We visited the pier twice on our vacation. We were able to see dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, and many different fish. This is definitely an experience you don’t want to miss!

As a local, I think total ripoff. As a tourist it might be cool. You have to review things for what they are. As a tourist attraction, it's decent and price is low. It is just a pier though, you are paying just to walk...More

one can see the gulf from the parking lot along with several fine restaurants around the parking lot, and there are showers for washing off the salt water along with restrooms.

When we were there many personal hammocks were hung under the pier. I didn't ask anyone but it appeared to be a first come first grab issue.
