  • This pier has a Ruby's at the end so I guess one more star is in order. A good place to watch the surfers and beachgoers.  more »
  • We stopped to walk the pier and enjoy the beach. Fun time was had by all. Parking was close and inexpensive. Double bonus!  more »

  • Walking down this pier while the cold breezes of the ocean hit you, the sun's glistening orange rays touch your face and give subtle warmth as it sets ever so slowly. The smell of the food being sold at the pier that engulfs your nose with joy and excitement, the sounds of life and laughter amongst the crowd. This pier is really special, and it is relaxing. You should take a stroll down if you haven't, it shows true beauty at its finest.
  • Seeing the vast numbers of people and families going night fishing off of the pier is inspiring. Having an ice cream shake at Ruby's capped off a wonderful evening. The crashing of the ocean waves against the shore has its own unique way of comfort to the soul.
