We stopped one evening to take in the pier, we got to see a small shark reeled in by a fisherman and a couple of stingrays. Very interesting!

Skim boarding, longboard surfing and pier fishing. Great spot for families and everyone else. Get there before 10am for the best parking and choice of spots on the beach.

This is not just your regular pier. Along with the pier and its opportunity to try your fishing skills, visitors can experience a great view of the immediate coastline. A perfectly kept aquarium inside the main building will delight both young and old.

Didn't really find this pier to be the greatest for taking sunrise photos. Very touristy and thought the view of the sunrise was obstructed.If I were into fishing, I think this would be a fabulous place to go.

You can’t go to Nags Head and not go to Jeanette’s Pier! It is a classic on the Outer Banks and there is nothing better than walking out on the pier and looking out on the Atlantic and seeing everybody having fun at the beach....More
