What a wonderful time on the pier with my family. Brought back memories of being a little kid walking on the pier at Holden Beach.

Walked out onto the pier, beautiful views. My son tried to use the scope but could't see out of it, too much sand in the lens. Very quiet and peaceful. Located right next to the motel we stayed at so didn't have to travel.

Enjoyed walking on the pier with our granddaughter, and even got to see a tiger shark that some people caught while we were there. Made our vacation even more memorable.

We've been coming to this pier for years now. Rick is a staple and one of the nicest people in the town. Definitely knows and shows his love for oak island. Nice pier to have fun fishing!

They do close the pier so that they may go home but I'm not sure of the time. They also have to clean up a bit for the next day.
