We loved our leisurely afternoon at this beautiful pier overlooking the scenic Atlantic. Huge waves, sunshine, a beautiful accessible beach, and lots of surfers made this afternoon enjoyable. Lots of fishermen on the pier are fun to watch or maybe you would like to try...More

this is the spot all the weather people were broadcasting from during Florence hurricane September 2018; the history of this pier is worth the visit; beautiful views; lots to read on the walls about the Jennette family

This is a place to hang out for a while and still enjoy it. We saw lots of fisherman and even a surf board contest. The $2 cost is well worth it.

We were all ready to go out on this pier and see a beautiful view! Not sure why $14 is charged just to walk out on the pier. We certainly would not pay $28 for two of us! We do not fish. Very disappointed!

We were only in town for the weekend but this is a must do again. They have fish from the aquarium in different tanks inside and our kiddos would love the interaction. Plenty of seating and information posts along the pier.

So worth the $2 for a visit. Amazing views of the ocean, pier and town. Fisherman are everywhere. Great spot for beautiful pictures.

Rented a rod, bought some bait , paid $14.00 and had a blast fishing off this pier. Wish we had something like this in Jersey.

There's not a person to actually clean your fish, but there are some stations where you can do it.
