There were several locals fishing the pier..some with poles and several catching crab..an interesting event for people who have never experienced this before! It's also a nice area to just sit and watch the sailboats in the bay and view Jekyll Island in the distance. Bring along binoculars and you can see the interesting driftwood sculptures on the beach.

This is a nice destination for a walk while staying at the Lodge or the Home 2 Suites and great places to shop and eat in the village.

Very nice pier. Sit and relax and watch the locals crabbing and fishing or join in the fun. Nice shaded area with a great breeze.

I have fished many piers on the east coast and the gulf, but was surprised by the heavy current around this pier. I usually use a fish finder rig and fish the bottom, but the current would not let me hold the bottom. The other drawback was the breeze. Most days we were on St Simon, the breeze was in... More

Small pier. There were a lot of people fishing and using pier. Nice to see, but had to watch where you walked in order not to get hooked by the people fishing. Located at end of village, so worth the walk to see.

Partially covered and lighted pier with a "T" shape. Fishing permitted. No alcohol or dogs permitted. Located a short walk from the lighthouse and right off the town hub.

I love coming here. My dad used to fish off this pier when we were kids and it never ceased to amaze me what bounty of the sea that people caught each day. From all types of fish to crabs and shrimp! The birds would hang around to get the guts after the fishermen cleaned their catch. You get a... More

This is a nice spot to watch the sunset, people are fishing, enjoying the surrounded area. A lot of benches and seat around the area.

Walked the pier to check out the locals crabbing. Was nice as there was not one panhandler out there....or anywhere, that I could see. Anyway, great place to see Dolphin swim by and maybe catch a glimpse of a sea turtle or two.

I enjoyed going to this pier since 1970 when I travel down to St. Simons to visit family. I visited again recently and was so delighted that it still has the same magic. First of all, FREE is a good thing. In Virginia Beach, we pay a fee to walk on a pier. It has a nice railing now that... More
