This dock has so many activities going out of it. Atlantis Submarine, Body Glove Sunset Dinners and UFO Parasailing to mention a few. It is close to restaurants and places to stay.

This pier is only for catching a boat or to fish. Head down to the end of the pier early as the pier gets crowded, pick your spot and good luck fishing.

The small sandy beach is nice. It's cool to see all the boats coming and going right around sunset. The sunsets from here are amazing.
