  • This is an amazing spot if you are into photography!! Best time would either be early in the morning or later afternoon when the sun is close to setting. The stumps jutting out of the water, cruise ships moving in and out amazing sun sets and sun rises make for some beautiful photography moments. Even if you are not into photography, it's still a nice place for an evening walk with a nice sea breeze washing over you.
  • Great place to relax. Have coffee at Mr. Hobson. Chat with friendly staff. Then stroll on Promenade
  • Had a meal. Then went for a walk around. Grest food, lovely surroundings.
  • This pier is a great place to forget about everything else for a few minutes and relax. Enjoy the crystal blue water and let your mind wander.
  • Great interpretive experience. Classic iconic photo spot for the current age. I personally preferred it as a working pier but great to see it still standing and not over developed as it was in danger of becoming.
