Worth the $2 to get on the pier, for people watching and the views. Would be fun to fish there, if you have time.

This is a great pier! I've been visiting here with family for years and always come here for bait and fishing. It's great being able to rely on a few things. The Virginia Beach pier is one of those retreats that is a welcome home...More

It’s gives pretty views when you walk out on but stinks that you have to pay just to walk out on it. Did it once for the experience but won’t pay to do it again

Walked out onto this not expecting it to be as disgusting as it was. However, I should have been prepared since it was a fishing pier. It is not a romantic walk type pier, it is a smell dead fish and squeeze your way through...More
