“Great way to spend a morning!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We recently traveled through Kure Beach and stopped by the Town Center and pier. What fun! We had to go through the bait shop to get to the pier, but the stop was well worth it. One can enjoy watching various people fishing off of the pier, hang around with George the pelican, but, most importantly, take in some scenic views of the ocean and coastline. A great way to enjoy the day!

“Nice walk on the pier with great veiws :)”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

To get to the pier, you walk inside the store where you can get bait, gifts, and food. You can get a fishing permit for $5 or Shark permit for $12. Walked out onto the pier and what a view. An old rustic pier with pelicans watching you fish. A nice walk in the late afternoon. Parking is free in Kure Beach which is a plus.

“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We visit the Kure Beach Pier several times a year. It is one of my favorite places to visit. It has a small "hometown" feel, yet has ample attractions, shopping and dining options. Pelicans "hang out" on the pier and the staff is more than friendly. You don't know what you are missing if you have never visited the Kure Beach Pier!
