This pier is a great place to be when the sun sets. The crowds are usually large but manageable. It's interesting to people watch as folks participate in various activities.

Went fishing, son caught a shark was thrilled. We rented poles, the price was Ok for Florida. You have to pay 3 dollars just walk out on the pier, It was beautiful view though.

Stroll out on the Pier and watch the fish and fishermen. Nice view of the beach, Benches along the pier to stop and sit down and watch the people.

We loved spending the afternoon at the pier and watching the fishermen and the wildlife! We saw dolphins, sea turtles and sting rays while we were there and saw someone catch a baby black tip shark. There's definitely a lot to see!

We were walking near the pier and thought it might be worth a walk. However, as we approached, we discovered that there was a charge! Admittedly, it was only $3 and, if you wanted to fish, the price rose to $7. But, it's the principle...More
