One of the longer piers I've run across. As you walk out, you pass the transition point from the emerald green of the beach water to the dark blue of the deeper water. The emerald-colored water is truly beautiful and worth the trip.

We have visited this pier for several years. It's great for kids and adults. Lots to see off the pier and we love seeing the fish the fishermen are catching.

My honey and I took a scroll on the pier walking hand-n-hand. Watching others fish for whales, etc. was INTERESTING!!
