  • What a very nice pier. Clean easy access lots of room for fishing and many fish cleaning stations. Beautiful for sunset viewing. Sharkeys for a cold cocktail is nice as well.
  • Reconstruction currently going on (June 2019). Should be much better when they're done. The previous planks were strange looking. We've spent many hours on the pier fishing, watching sunsets, and just walking. We have a lot of good memories here. The bait/souvenir shop was a very nice addition.
