This place is good for fishing and getting some vitamin D. There’s souvenir shop and if you suddenly go in the mood for fishing, you can rent a fishing pole 🎣 and buy different kinds of bait.

Seems to be a popular spot for fishing if that’s your thing. A $2:00 fee gets you access to walk on. Didn’t see much in the water and overall this was just an ok 30 minutes or so.

Jennette's Pier is the hub of our vacations at Nags Head. The beach around it are beautiful and they gave the perfect bath house. The gift shops and mini aquarium are nice. Love Jennette's Pier!!

So we didn't go out on the pier, but it's still a fun destination and a beautiful beach. They also have restrooms and a fun indoor center and gift shop.

The little museum is cool and educational. We paid $2 each to walk out on the pier. It was worth the price. There was thousands of small fish schooling beneath the pier. Some educational boards on the pier. Lots of people fishing. The views are...More

It is fun to walk out on the pier, but there is also a great gift shop and a section to learn more about the water and tides. Neat place to visit.

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