The pier extends at the tip of the "downtown" area. It's affords lovely views, and nice bench seating, some covered from the sun. Lots of folks fishing off of the pier.

The pier at St. Simons is one of our favorite places to go. People including local artist are always there. You feel like you are home there. You have to visit the Pier if you visit St. Simons Island.
