  • 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!
  • Fun physicle swim bike walk eat Sunshine. Beautiful people from all over us and world. A favorite place of ours.
  • Not the best swimming spot but I love to go there and walk the pier, lots of fishing done here and great place for families
