Every summer when we go to the beach, we always make it a goal to go to the Fishing Pier at night. At nighttime when you walk down the pier, the hotels are all lit up at night and it truly is beautiful.

A very nice pier for fishing or walking. Saw a lot of marine life while out there. Sharks, sea turtles and all kinds of fish.

We just took a stroll and watched people fishing from the pier. Lots of marine life to see if you stop and watch... we saw jellyfish, stingrays and sharks.

The pier is busy, well lite for a coastal area at night with a large parking area and beach accuses. The pier has a 5 dollar walk fee, was rather expensive for the size of our group to just walk out for a quick look.More

A pier walk is a great bargain at $3.00 for a beach activity, and the money goes to maintaining the pier. Come back soon!
