This pier took a long time to build but it is finally here, YEAH! The old wooden pier had character and allowed fishermen to fish off the end, but this does not. This is a dynamic pier structure with a "sail" in the middle. I actually like it, but do miss the "view" that was there without the "sail." However you can still see the view.... just walk down a few feet- or out to the pier itself. We took a walk out and around the pier and it was very beautiful. Structured very well. Many people were swimming under and around the steel stilts that hold it up. The waves were lapping against the shoreline. It lights up at night as well. You can even see the beautiful sunsets from the end of the pier. No obstructions at all. And those sunsets? They are to die for! Every single one is like a "painting." You will never forget a sunset in PV once you have seen one!
