“Local color”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

For over 50 years this has been the place to go daily, especially at sunset. Locals and tourists alike meet and greet the sea, lighthouse, and village of this charming seaside location.

“Wow! That was a big Shark...”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Talk about a conversation! The laughter is contacgious, and the sharks are huge if you get a chance to see someone catch one. It is shocking and hilarious to see a 6' shark on a line jumping around... Oh, and the people you will see. You are sure to be talking for days!

“Great people watching!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

The pier was lots of fun for people watching. Our kids liked watching all of the people fish as well as hear their stories. The locals are so very friendly! This is a beautiful place to take in the scenery- the beach, the people and the lighthouse! Spend some time on the pier when you visit St. Simon's Island, I highly recommend it!

“Great crabbing!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Great pier for fishing and crabbing. We had a blast Crabbing off of the pier for the first time. There is a bait and tackle shop within walking distance for supplies, which is where we bought our crab net. Locals are quick to offer helpful suggestions. There is a cleaning station on the pier where you can clean your catch and restrooms nearby.

“Gorgeous view at sunset and free!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Don't miss walking the shops at the village and eat at Iguanas and then end up at the pier at sunset. GORGEOUS! It is free, relaxing and all the fishermen are so nice
