We went around 6-6:30 to watch sunset. It didn’t disappoint. We even caught a glimpse of sea turtles and a few dolphins! Totally worth the $2 for a cheap family outing!

2 dollars to just walk out on it, go about an hour before sunset and you will see a dolphin, shark or sea turtle. Also beers are only 3 dollars each.

A little disappointed with the overall experience at the Pier. The restaurants are way over priced in my opinion for the quality of the food taste. We left the impression that the restaurants were more "fast food" quality at premium prices for the quality of...More

After eating at a restaurant just behind the pier, we paid $2 to walk the pier. It's $8 to fish, but we didn't have the time for that, so we passed. This is a great spot to see marine wildlife. We spotted dolphins, sharks, turtles,...More

This pier was amazing. I think it’s because the water is so clear but we saw several dolphins, a sea turtle and a ridiculous amount of fish. Close to the end of the pier the floor is made of interconnecting grates so it’s pretty scary...More

I'm not really sure there are any condos by the pier. None you could walk to. It's all hotels by the pier.
