Pier is very clean, well maintained and well lit in the evening. Several kiosks to get snacks, drinks and ice cream. Beautiful scenery all around. No charge to walk the pier either.

Sunday morning - East pier is so full of people. There are some building works at the moment, but there is plenty of pier left to enjoy a good day out.
