After having fish and chips at Dick's we went for a walk along the pier. My friends dared that I couldn't eat a small kids cone. I love ice cream and couldn't pass it up when I found out that the proceeds from the pier...More

The pier is mentioned a lot of places and seems to generate some enthusiasm so we stopped. There's a fishing pier and a spot to purchase bait, rent tackle or get a limited selection of food. When I was there, one person was fishing but...More

Nice place to sit and relax. Watch people fishing and boats - or even cruise ships - pass by. Maybe not the most incredible pier in the world but good on a sunny afternoon.

I am not in the habit of reviewing piers, but writing a review will elevate me to another level of attraction expertness, which i cannot resist. And, to be honest, we visited this pier and many people have felt the impulse to share their experiences...More
