Overview
More
Built by two local brothers from the village of Kinnakeet (now known as Avon Village), the pier took two years to construct. It opened its doors in the summer of 1963 and has been in continuous operation since then. The pier stretches 665 feet out into the Atlantic Ocean. Its visible crooked bends are testament to the forces of Mother Nature over the many years. Today the Avon Fishing Pier is the only pier remaining in operation in the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The pier is world famous for its many records, especially with giant Red Drum that frequently school just off the end of the pier. Today the pier is in even better hands with ownership belonging to Koru Village Resort and Spa. Whether you are a seasoned angler or just taking the family fishing for the day, the Avon Fishing Pier is the perfect spot. Come and start a tradition of your very own today.

I loved my visit on the Avon Pier with my husband and son. We enjoyed taking pictures of the beach and the strong waves. We will return to fish.

We took a walk on the pier ($1 per adult) on our last night after dinner at Pangea Tavern. It was sunset and absolutely beautiful. We wish we had known about the pier sooner because it seems like a great place to fish. You can...More

It's a nice pier but having to pay to walk on a pier seemed a little silly considering every pier I have ever walked on was free. It's located next to an amazing restaurant so that's a plus. If I was to utilize the pier...More

Nice pier. Drinks and souvenirs inside. Rod n reels rented for $10. $1 fee to just walk on the pier to sightsee, We watched several people fishing. This is a great place for some nice photo taking. Parking is free.
