Nice place to take a walk and watch people fish. We even watched a surfing competition from out on the pier! It is a good value for $2 each for all day. Good parking and gift shop.

Jennette's Pier is a concrete pier that is beautiful. They have a gift shop and an aquarium inside. Great place to fish or just walk out onto and get a great view of the ocean.
