What a fun place to go - walk to the end and see the locals fishing and enjoying their day. But be careful of the birds - they are not afraid!!! more »
I was trying to find new places to fish and was willing it give it a go. The fishing was not good. We didn't catch anything, but on the other hand the beach is one of the nicest beaches in South Florida. It looks amazing. The pier costs $3.50 to come in and fish which is less then other piers in the area. The pier has a bar and a tackle shop. The park has a public restroom and plenty of parking spots. However, they do charge a minimum of two hours to park. So it means it's $6 dollars. $3 for each parking hour.
WATCH OUT FOR PARKING TICKETS! We parked in the lower lot by Benny's for a short period of time and returned to a $30 parking ticket! When I called to dispute it the man said said the parking spots are painted indicating "decal" parking only.. not only was it dark and we saw no kind of marking, when he told me I had to ask what "decal" parking only even was?? I guess prepaid permits have decals placed on their car somewhere?!? Obviously, if we saw that, we would not have parked there! What a ripoff and a terrible opinion of the area..
