If you are on the Island, this is a must! Be sure to catch the beautiful sunset and the view of Jekyll Island. Also has nice views of the lighthouse. Occasionally a resident pelican will make a visit. Great photo opportunities!

I went at night with friends just to walk. It was well lit and felt completely safe. People were crabbing and setting up to fish. Just beautiful!

Nice sunset with interesting touch of history. Beautiful area for a nice walk, shopping, and in our case nice sunset. At some points not they caught a 1000 pound shark from the pier. Wonderful play ground and park close by. No swimming.

The pier is situated at the end of the shopping strip. It is wide and partially covered with seating on,the sides so that you could rest out of the sun. There were many fishermen busy trying to lure a fish or two which provided entertainment....More

Maybe one has to be a fan of sunsets, but I thought that this was an exceptional sunset location. Easy to get great unobstructed views towards the west, as well as turning back to see the lighthouse. The pier is well designed and well maintained...More

Apparently yes, but of the hundreds that fish there, no one does. I have asked at the local fishing tackle store as well and they told me not to bother with one.

I have only Ben to the St simons pier. I have seen a wide variety of fish caught here, including shrimps, blue crab, small hammerhead sharks, etc. I have also seen a lot of people getting collectively skunked. That said it... More
