  • This a traditional wooden pier. There's no charge if you just want to walk out on to it. Access is via the bait / tackle / souvenir shop. You can hire fishing tackle and I believe there is a charge to...  more »

  • Out for an evening walk taking in the ocean waves from the pier. The wind was enchanting causing fairly good sized waves for the surfers below. Enjoyable time of watching them on their boards or just ...  more »

  • This is one of the older fishing piers but my father loves it. The whole reason for my visit this year was for him. The rates are reasonable to get the permit to fish for the day and you can even rent fishing poles for $10. The views are incredible. The pier goes out far enough to see the endless sea. You won't be disappointed if you visit this pier
  • Great little shop. Great view of ocean. Bait and tackle, plus small deli and fried food. I had a decent founder and fries basket. Good for what it is! Domestic beers only, full bar in lounge upstairs.
  • Old time pier. Perfect for catching the sunrise on the beach. Restaurant up top offers $1 draft beers (small, but cold) & ocean-side porch, which is perfect for sunset sitting.
  • My daughter and I went out onto the pier shortly after it opened last weekend. It was a nice way to spend the morning. The pier sways some at the end, but it appears they've secured it in place for now with a metal beam chained in place. The people fishing on the pier were outstanding! So nice and friendly. One even let my daughter hold a fish he just caught. The staff inside were pretty abrupt and not so friendly though. They brought my 5 star rating down to a 4.5 star rating. They might have been just having an off day tho. We didn't go to the restaurant upstairs tho. Hopefully next time.
  • Great little fishing pier. You can rent everything you need. Rod rental is 10 bucks with a 20 buck deposit. There is bar overlooking the island on the top floor of pier building. Parking is 3 bucks but included in fishing pass. There is no cost just to walk on the pier
