If you are going to the beach then this is a great location. Many people sat under the pier for cool shade from the sun. Be aware that the waves are too strong right there to swim in.

My family and I will go out on beach piers at any beach we visit. This is just another beach pier to walk out on and relax and just look around and out over the water.

This pier is our family reference point for meeting up. Most of the time we are out in the sun on the beach, but it is nice to escaped in the shade of the pier and go inside for a treat.

The wooden pier was replaced after hurricane damage decades ago with this new cement pier. It may not be exactly what you expected as it really is mainly just a pier with a nominal entrance fee. I always think the view from the much more...More
