We walked out on the pier during a high surf warning and thought it was great. Watching the massive waves, the surfers, and the people trying to surf, was awesome.

Wife and I took surf lesson here and had a blast. Waves were solid but not too big for beginners. Locals were very chill. Good times.

Only way to the pier right now is to walk from the beach, due to construction from the hurricane. Nice stroll on the beach to get here. Picnic tables at the end of the pier. Gorgeous views.

This pier is currently closed due to the hurricane destruction, but 250 people was there anyway. Come here for a great beach and gorgeous mountain views.

Perhaps there was a reason for the pier in the past, but it is now defunct and not even pretty. It is at the end of the beach with the least people or foot traffic.
