I love that Kure allows guest to just browse the pier for free and enjoy the scenery. It's quite a beautiful coastline, and just enjoyable for an evening walk after dinner...

Old time NC fishing pier in the heart of Kure Beach. The store inside contains lots of old memorabilia. The pier is long with great views of the Atlantic Coast.

Their store had just about anything and everything so I imagine they had chairs and umbrellas. Extremely nice people so if they don't have them they will point you in the right direction.
