The fishermen were catching all sorts from small shark to bigger fish. You could see the dolphins close by as well. Have a meal and walking along the pier is free, well worth it.

It's a lot of fun walking out onto the fishing pier. You see the most interesting creatures from the sea and dry land. These guys were catching stingray. In addition, Jimmys on the Pier is located there. It's prettygood and the view is great.

you can walk partially out but then must pay to go beyond about mid point. The pay station is a typical tourist shop with all the crap we've come to expect from shops like this
