Affordable prices for fishing. Good food. Family friendly atmosphere. Love spending a day in the sun casting a line. The only negative is parking can be hard to find in season.

We spend a lot of time here when we are at the beach. There is so much here. We enjoy breakfast at the cafe. You can get a couple of eggs with the fixings for a good price and also enjoy the beachfront view while you eat. It's a great place to sit above the beach traffic and watch the... More

Many people fish there in the evenings, and you can rent gear at a counter between the arcade and... More

Went to have a couple of drinks, great breeze off the ocean. 2 bands playing one at each end of the pier. Drinks are a little pricey, liquor seems watered down , I would stick with a beer!

My son, grandsons, and myself, fished on the pier many times during our visit. We would go in the mornings and the evenings. It was my first experience at ocean fishing, so I found it very interesting. We caught some unusual fish. My grandson caught a ray. That was exciting. It does cost to fish on the pier, but we...
