This pier is a fairly new concrete pier built to withstand hurricane force winds. There is a fee for fishing from the pier and a smaller fee for walking out on the pier as a non-fisher. There's a gift shop with typical tees and supplies. There's an aquarium also.

Very clean, some interesting educational plaques, cool aquarium, nice gift shop. Very pleasant, even with the gusty winds. Great place to walk, enjoy the scenery, and watch people fish.

The aquarium inside the main building is to show the type of fish live under the boardwalk. Just $2 to walk out and a list... More

Beautiful pier that goes way out into the ocean that makes for great fishing, or there is a lot of great seats if you just want to sit and relax and take in the ocean view. There is a fabulous gift shop here, and some very informative learning stations. This should be a place you visit on your vacation to... More
