I like this small town, quiet spot. The Melbourne Pier seems to be located in Ryckman Park, or at least they are right next to each other because they share parking. Starting recently, you have to pay for parking and the fancy machines didn't seem to take quarters; however, I actually lucked out and got free parking. (I probably would have rated it 4 stars if I had to pay at least $2.50 to walk around for a few minutes.)

It may be useful to note that this is not directly at a beach access and ocean swimming point like some of the pictures indicate. Right by this Pier - technically in the Ryckman Park - are cute mileage signs and parts of an old railroad, which was used to move people across a few dozen blocks to the beach side.

What a beautiful beach, not crowded at all. Was able to catch the sunset from there one day. The water was warm even at 8pm at night. There’s paid street parking or free lot parking depending on how far down the beach you are. It was clean too with water stations nearby

Stopped here for a photo with the Melbourne Beach sign then wandered onto the pier. Great views up, down and across the Indian River. We then started fish watching and spotted a ray swimming beside the pier. Made our day. The history surrounding the pier is explained at the start. Worth a visit.

The pier is a great place to take a stroll. It offers a beautiful scene with views of the water and sunset. Magical things happen here. Oh and there are quite a few people that fish off this pier.

Right beside Ryckman park, a large pier extending out into the intracoastal. Can fish off the end, lovely at night and restaurants and pubs right there

We are locals and this is the best place to take your young kids and a fishing pole. I can’t remember ever NOT catching something!! All sorts of Indian River critters will appear on your line. You may also see a manatee or dolphin passing by. Great sunset shots over the water for the novice photographer. Ryckman Park located just to the right of the pier.

After dining at Djohns steak house, nothing like a walk on this very lengthy public pier out into the intracoastal. Very Kool

What a great Pier to walk out to the river. We saw dolphins and spotted a Manatee. Some very friendly fisherman doing their fishing and a beautiful sunset.
