  • This is my husband's happy place therefore I had to give it a high score. I do not fish but many do and this place is nice clean and well lite at night. They do charge a fee of 1.00 per day to walk ou...  more »
  • This is a very nice clean well maintained fishing pier that one feels safe walking out on to fish or sight see. Had no luck catching any fish except a small sand shark. It stays open until 2 in the mo...  more »

  • $1 per person admission; do not waste your money if your not going there to fish. Pier is packed with fisherman with multiple rods - we couldn't get near the sides to look out the farther out we went, and got dirty looks when we did. Staff is very friendly and it's well maintained, but don't waste your time if your going to sight see. Wish the other pier was still around -we never had that problem there and it always seemed like a nicer balance.
  • Nice pier to fish and walk on. People often catch very nice fish there. But at $10/pole per day, it makes it out of reach to go often. Especially if the fish aren't biting. Yearly passes are WAY overpriced as well.
  • Always love it. Even when the fish aren't biting which isn't very often
  • Great pier! Beautiful here. A must see while in the area.
  • Great, friendly fishing pier. I have a 35 year history of fishing from Ocean Crest, but that time was also split with the former Long Beach Pier (now gone, but used to be the longest public fishing pier on the East Coast). Four stars just because I still hold the old Long Beach Pier in my heart as my favorite.
