Center walkway is completely covered. Saw several fishermen so fishing must be pretty good. The entire area was very nice. Lots so see.

Just the typical Fishing Pier. Nothing really special except for the gorgeous views. It is located adjacent to a picnic area and in close walking distance to the Saint Simons lighthouse.

This is a covered pier extending south into saint simons sound. It is a wide, sturdy, covered pier suitable for families to stroll out over the water.

I love where the pier is located. It is located off a shopping/restaurant area so after walking the pier one can stop in for a bite to eat. It is also a short walk from the lighthouse.

There is not a fishing rental on the pier, but nearby at Dockside Inn, they have a rental booth set up on the inlet there.
