This pier is long and big. I was surprise that there was not more people heading to walk it. It was deserted when I get here. I am not even sure if it is open 24/7 .... maybe not. Check before you go there.

Dolphins were all over. The fishing was rough due to storm but still a nice place. Parking is $3 an hour.

Don’t cheap out on the $0.50 entrance fee. It’s Worth a stroll to the end of the pier to watch the fisherman try and reel one in. The views are also pretty neat especially in the evening!

I went to the pier and expected to only be around a few people fishing. That is not the case. Plenty of people arrived to spectate and watch us fish. I caught a baby black tip shark. A lot of people were catching sting rays...More

There are hotel rooms and apartments for rent in the area. I don't know of a "whole house" for rent, but would guess that there are 3 bedroom apartments nearby.
