Great views of the sea and the coastline. At night some serious fishing going on, plenty of talk and all the gear on display. When we were out on pier saw large ray swimming by and next day Dolphins swim by in large group.

Our rental allows us full access to the pier. The staff has been great. They are friendly, courteous and helpful. Their bait and tackle availability is adequate and the prices are fair. Very enjoyable experience.
