Built by two local brothers from the village of Kinnakeet (now known as Avon Village), the pier took two years to construct. It opened its doors in the summer of 1963 and has been in continuous operation since then. The pier stretches 665 feet out into the Atlantic Ocean. Its visible crooked bends are testament to the forces of Mother Nature over the many years. Today the Avon Fishing Pier is the only pier remaining in operation in the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The pier is world famous for its many records, especially with giant Red Drum that frequently school just off the end of the pier. Today the pier is in even better hands with ownership belonging to Koru Village Resort and Spa. Whether you are a seasoned angler or just taking the family fishing for the day, the Avon Fishing Pier is the perfect spot. Come and start a tradition of your very own today.

Nice views. Clean environment for kids. Looks to be a good spot to fish. We were charged 1.00 per person for sightseeing. Friendly proprietor recommended a good place 4 dinner.

First, you need to realize this pier is OLD....and ON THE OCEAN. It isn't smooth as glass- it's survived harsh wind, rough water and Mother Nature for many years. However, strolling down the middle- taking in the view of the Atlantic and the town behind-...More

It was a fun, quick stop. The pier planks reminded me of a fun house, the curve and twist, I'm sure from the hard weather, but it was fun to walk.

One of the last piers standing and stretching hundreds of feet out into the Atlantic Ocean. The storms and winds have taken its toll on the pier. Its amazing to walk out to the end as the pier dips and curves in various spots. Fisherman...More

This pier is an adventure all unto its own but in a good way. It's like walking a rickety bridge into the ocean. It felt safe but, you can tell there have been lots of repairs overtime and the twist and curves give it character....More

Cost a dollar per person to walk out on. It is clean and not a lot of rowdy people. There is a little shop before you go on pier
