Parking is very convenient. There is a small fee to walk on the pier, with a wristband provided which is good for the entire day. The views are outstanding. It was fun to watch the fishermen at the end of the pier.

At the start of the pier there is a large parking lot as wheel as bathrooms. There is also a bar/restaurant and small convenience store. You must pay to walk or fish off the pier, though not much.

You can just walk along and enjoy the breeze and views or rent some fishing gear. There are also plenty of nearby restaurants and the Casino Beach restaurant right at the bottom of Pier. Tons of free parking as well
