  • We were in the area and it was a cold but sunny day at Kure Beach. We walked around the (mostly closed) cute town and then strolled out onto the Fishing Pier. At the outer most end of the pier...

  • I enjoyed walking on the pier and watching the fisherman catch. They had snacks in shop which was nice to grab.

  • Cool facts: this little gem was built in 1923 as is actually the oldest fishing pier on the east coast. This is pretty impressive considering it's survived battering waves and storms for over 100 years. At first I thought I had to fork over $8 to walk on but that fee is only for those looking to fish. But for those looking for a catch, word is that rainbow trout, walleye, and muskie are plentiful. My visit was on a sunny but hot and muggy mid July summer day. But the stiff southern breeze made it bit more bearable. Kure Pier is in the lovely town of Kure Beach. A cozy, laid-back beach village just south the must more touristy and crowded Carolina Beach. Peaceful, serene, and relaxing are what come to describe the vibe here. I would go so far as to say that it felt Caribbean, in a good way. In all, a true gem, one of many that make North Carolina wonderful place.
  • Free activity alert! Costs nothing to walk on the pier or browse the store that leads to it (must walk through store to access pier). There is a fee for fishing, but it seemed worth it - saw multiple people catch fish in the few minutes we were out there. Cool views. There were some benches available out there. Within the store, there was a lot of tourist/beach items, fishing equipment, some snacks behind the counter, and a small arcade. Worth checking out if you're in the area!
