This was a great place to watch surfers, but it was nothing exciting otherwise. Although the Christmas tree made of string lights was a nice touch (at the end of the pier).

The pier draws plenty of tourists as well as local surfers. This area is dotted with small businesses that cater to those looking for souvenirs and quick food. There is no fine dining in the immediate area.

Excellent clam chowder at Chele's. Fun shops. Parking at the pier is limited and you have to pay but we didn't mind. Nice visit.

There are a lot of shops in a small area including restaurants.. There are bike rentals as well as banana bike (easy to ride on the sand!) rentals. It's worth a visit but very conjested due to the fact that so much is located in a small area.

Nice place to spend a day at the beach. Very quiet and uncrowded the day we went. Had a nice walk on the pier, along the beach. Lots of shells and stuff to look at. Wished we could have stayed longer. Will come here again. Stores were fun to look at and lots of choices when it is time to eat.
