  • This is a park right on the beach in Sunny Isles. There is a very small parking lot but there is a $2 per hour garage a block away. My advice is to unload your beach stuff and then send someone back.....  more

  • Great food, too bad so many people agree because it made the wait a little longer each time we went to eat there!

  • What a beautiful beautiful place!!!! Love the view you get by going all the way down to the pier, took my sister that was visiting from New York and she was amazed by the beautiful clear water and gorgeous tall buildings. Will definitely come again.
  • In 1936 the Miami Beach Fishing Pier Company was contracted to build the 800 foot long Sunny Isles Pier in order to attract visitors to the area. For many years the pier was embraced by locals, visitors, and fishermen. By 1980 the pier had aged and was deemed unsafe and talks began about tearing it down. In 1982 it was designated a historic site which paved the way for it being saved in 1985 by the new owners, Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort who purchased it from the city and renamed it the Newport Fishing Pier. The pier is located directly behind the hotel. The hotel reopened the pier in 1986 after making a million dollars in repairs. In 2005 Hurricane Wilma damaged the pier structurally. The Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort entered into a partnership with Sunny Isles to restore it. Two million dollars toward the project was provided by the owners of the hotel and the rest of the six and a half million dollar project was paid for by the city in exchange for having the pier deeded over to them as part of Pier Park. In 2012 the pier was taken down and rebuilt with hurricane rated impact windows and doors in the Beach Bar, the restaurant on the pier. There is also a lifeguard observation area on the second floor. After eight years of being closed, the 776 foot pier reopened to the public in 2013. Today this is the last remaining public fishing pier in Miami-Dade County. Unlike a lot of piers it is free to walk out on it and there is a nominal charge if you are fishing. I had an enjoyable walk out over the ocean and I really like the Beach Bar. It looked like a nice place to grab a bite and a drink. The parking lot for Pier Park is extremely limited but their is a garage a block away for $2 per hour. This is a great stop if you find yourself in Sunny Isles.
