We walked up and down the pier, watching the fish and dolphins and talking to the fisherman. 5 kids ages 4-14 and they enjoyed spending a couple of hours just hanging out and watching the ocean and people during sunset. Next time we'll rent a few rods!

Once you find a parking spot, it is a short walk to sand and the ocean. We went several times during our vacation.

gorgeous view from the pier. Lots of fisherman out today. It was interesting to see what they were reeling in. Save your receipt and come back for the sunset. I saw several dolphins alongside the pier this evening. Beautiful sunset.

I personally did not go on the pier, but my husband took our kids. They had a ball, and came back excited to show me pictures of a sea turtle and swordfish they saw in the water as well as tell me fish stories of what everyone was catching. Cheap entertainment!

The longer of the 3 piers that are on PCB (including the small one at St Andrews) You can pay 3.00 for a spectator stamp, or rent a fishing pole & buy bait pretty cheaply at Half Hitch Bait Shop, which is at the entrance to the Pier. The guys in there can give you advise & help if you... More

Awesome place to fish and view sea life. Right in the middle of PCB at Pier Park so everyone should go out on the pier while in PCB. Open 24/7 too so that's a plus but you do have to pay to enter whether you fish or just looking. Lots of fish and fisherman especially early. Recommended

Grandson's favorite place to go, loves watching the fishermen. Very nice walkway with spectacular views, especially at sunset. Memory Benches are nice touch.

Fished here early one morning and user friendly because of the great value price and the fact you can pass through the high arch gate with a cart without removing your rods. The pier was also very clean and well maintained with several hose stations. Get here early for a parking space. Would have given 5 stars except for the... More
