We stayed in PB for 5 days and we visited the pier 3 times. It was in view from Our hotel but we went to walk on it and to fish as well. Great great time! Good prices on rod rentals and nice people to meet. An awesome view! Seen Dolphins 2 out of 3 times on the pier.

We love to come to the pier every time we visit. The vie is breathtaking. The crystal blue water and sugar white sand are just BEAUTIFUL!

Nice atmosphere with all the fishing rods. And we even saw people catching big fish! And stingwrays swimming by. It´s a good place for sunset and sunrise as well. It´s 1.25 admission.

It's fun to watch them for a little while, but I'm not a fisherman and had no interest in participating. Small fee to be able to walk... More

We couldn't figure out why no one was walking out on the pier every time we looked at it from our condo patio, then found out that they charge a nominal entry fee. Normally this would be no big deal, but it most of us found this annoying so we did not go.

This is our second year returning to the pier to fish. We rented two poles and fished for several hours. Caught a few catfish, but saw someone catch a stingray and several other exciting fish!
