  • Kinda expensive for a fishing pier. Not really worth the money, just to fish off of the pier. My husband caught just as many fish from the shore.  more »

  • Great way to pass the time. Great views, pirate boat rides, fishing or just walk the pier. Snacks, drinks and a great restaurants all in one place! Plenty of photo ops
  • Since the last time i went there (about 10 yrs ago), they have remodeled the place and pier. Its more family friendly, has more covered areas. They added a mini shop in the middle of the pier that sells snacks and tackle, which is very convenient instead of walking all the way back to the office.
  • Not at the pier at the restaurant next door food very expensive service very slow but delicious when it gets there
  • Parking is like musical chairs. Besides that this place is always crowded. The staff would not help set my fishing pole up, and employee was on their phone as he took care of us.
  • A great place for new anglers to start out fishing. The cost to fish on this pier is per rod and the price ,per rod, will vary depending on the time and day of the week. Night time fishing could be frustrating. This place is known for closing sometimes at 10:00PM. Calling ahead of time will save you the time and gas. Prices on merchandises are fair. They do sell bait.

Where to stay in South Padre Island

As with most tropical destinations, room rates in South Padre Island increase the closer you get to the beachfront, especially if you arrive at the height of tourist season. If you’ve built in a big budget for accommodations, stay at one of the town's high-rise luxury hotels or private seaside cottages. To stay near the water without spending too much, avoid the expensive spring break season. Consider one of the island's inns or developed campgrounds with easy beach access.
