    Scenic place, has good facilities. The sunset view from the pier is a sight to behold. If you're in the area, I highly recommend a visit, it will be worthwhile.

    Best Ever!! The cleanest pier I've seen!! Even in the designated fishing/crabbing areas. There were no rails on most of the pier! Children and parents paid attention, enjoying the freedom and open view. Love it!
