Living in a coastal town, most piers I’ve encountered are FREE to walk. This one is $2 per person just to walk down and back. The problem with walking it? It’s a narrow overcrowded fishing pier and the people fishing from it are not experienced...More

Most of the locals were friendly. The pelicans and other birds seemed very used to people and let us take a lot of pictures of them while they hung out looking for food. Great view of the ocean and beaches from the end of the...More

While $2 will not make or break the vacation budet it is something to be aware of! We went in the evening. Plenty of people were out enjoying the view.

We were just out for a morning walk ($2 per person) and enjoyed watching the people fish from the pier as well as the wild life. There is a sign at the entrance telling the kinds of fish that were caught the day before.

Great view , lots of local people fishing off pier makes you feel a bit out of place. Lots of blood on the ground from Fish and bait. Never the less worth seeing once.

Great place to walk along the beach and choose from numerous places for hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, and ice cream. Nice small shops. Lots of fun activities for the kids. All while walking along or sitting on the beautiful beachfront.

The pier is the perfect place for a stroll and to see some local color. Packed with fishermen, tourists, and locals alike, it makes for some great people-watching. Very cool to walk out over the ocean and be able to look back over the beach....More

Nice pier with good views but it was hard to enjoy with all the fisherman out there, didn't seem as long as it looks in pictures. Admission is $2 per person, definitely worth that, go early to beat the crowd.

I'm not really sure there are any condos by the pier. None you could walk to. It's all hotels by the pier.
