Rye pier just goes to show that you don’t have to travel far to find a great little spot for snorkeling. There is plenty of plant and fish life around the pylons and the water is so shallow and gentle that you can actually get...More

The Rye Pier is a nice way to take a slow stroll and take in the beauty of the surrounding hills and scenery, you will always find people fishing and there are some nice seats to sit along the way.

You need to watch where you are walking since the timbers are well aged and somewhat uneven, nerveless it is a good place to walk and there are some seats near the end. The water is usually crystal clear so you can see sea life....More
