“Dirty”
Review of Ocean Crest Pier

If they insist on charging you a dollar, they could at least power wash *some* of the bird poop away. We paid the two dollars for us to walk the pier - but you feel like its just a money grab when you realize how dirty it was. Great views though.

This town used to have THREE piers but with storms like SANDY you learn to appreciate them more & more as they offer so much. I've walked this beach 4 many miles an on particulars days the OVEAN CREST PIER was my turning point until they started charging an ADMISSION FEE. So, I just kept walking but sure miss the long stroll on old wooden planks, watchinf assorted fisherman spending days catching a blue or mackerel. The pier store is located on the DEAD-END of this island and less crowded but sparse offerings if you need essentials 4 day at beach or fishing! But remember, it's a pier and the cost 2 maintain plus at sunrise/sunset there are no worries over a dollar; nature is priceless!!
