Great view of the waves

This place is great to enjoy the view of the beach and also to see how the waves hit the down part of the pier making a great background for pictures

$3 per person if you want to walk out on the pier - there is a restaurant on the pier but it's not open for breakfast. Nice beach - great place to watch the waves crash against the pier.

Like the other review the pier is setup for fleecing fishermen. It is expensive to fish (entry fee, addition fee per pole, etc) and looks like a prison visitation entrance at the front. If you just want to walk around to the end expect to pay for the stroll.

This was one of our stops. Great view, didn't know until we arrived it's $3.00 just to walk out onto it. Worth it for the view.

Since many of the piers I have chosen to visit were free I was disappointed at this money grab. I'm not a fishing person and just wanted to walk to the end, take some pictures and walk back but not for a fee. Nuff said.

You are paying for the amazing sea views! This place is pretty expensive...the kids meals are $7! All he had was a grilled cheese and tiny cup of fruit! Food was ok...the padre colada was delicious. I'd go again for drinks and the beautiful sea views

Nice place to enjoy the gulf, watch locals fish, and look back along the coast. Cost is minimal and you can return any time on the same day. There is a convenient restaurant on the beach.
