I have been come the the pier for year since my mother moved to the Island. Ocean Crest Pier is were we spend most of your days fishing and hanging out with the locals. It cost a dollar to walk on the pier and worth ever cent the look at the ocean and the look back at the Island is just stunning. Yes the reviews on here are good and speaking about the bird poop yes there is poop on ever pier. If you are into fishing the prices on the pier are fair price to fish. I have fished on piers that cost a whole a lot more expensive. Bottom fishing and King Fishing both you can do at this pier with fishing tournaments for both throw out the year. I would recommend this pier to everyone to come visit and I often bring friends with me to visit and fish on the pier. The staff are great to laugh and have fun with and very helpful.

What can you say it's a pier. It's pretty to look at the ocean and back at the island. Lots of fishing tournaments happen here.

The people who run this pier are fantastic and it is just fun. It is also well kept up and you don't need a fishing license to fish there.

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!!
