“A Great Place to Hang Out and Relax”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

You don't have to fish to have fun here. There are nice seating areas to relax after spending time in the nearby shops and restaurants. Offers great views of the sea, beach access for walking, and wonderful wildlife. We had a good time just talking to other people and watching the pelicans dive for food in the ocean. The highlight of our time was observing a fisherman bring up a shrimp/crab trap with a large sea turtle and cheering him as he walked down from the pier to the beach to release the turtle back to the sea. Could have stayed all day here just chilling. This is a must see when one comes to the island.

“Spacious with lots of seating!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Very nice pier as far as piers go. I didn't fish, however was impressed that they had water hoses placed sporadically throughout for the cleaning of hands/fish - nice touch. Part of it is covered and part not so that is nice too. Beautiful view. :)

“Walking the fishing pier.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

This place seems to be the place everyone comes together. You see all kinds of people. Really cool place just to hang out and sometimes there is music. You never know what is in store
at the Pier.

“Pelicans and dolphins”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Loads of seats to sit and watch the fishermen and women struggle as the penguins steal the bait and the dolphins frolic close to shore. The pier area has been recently renovated and there are some magnificent trees and picnic areas

I didn't do any fishing, but it was spacious, had a great view, was very close to restrooms, restaurants and shops and the pelicans are fun to watch :)
