Venice Fishing Pier reviews
Unlike Myrtle Beach where you have to pay for everything! Visiting this pier was free! As was the parking! And you can fish off the pier for free without a fishing license! There’s a bait shop on..... more »
Love this pier and its always fun to see what the fishermen are catching! They even have a little shop on it! more »
What a very nice pier. Clean easy access lots of room for fishing and many fish cleaning stations. Beautiful for sunset viewing. Sharkeys for a cold cocktail is nice as well.
Reconstruction currently going on (June 2019). Should be much better when they're done. The previous planks were strange looking. We've spent many hours on the pier fishing, watching sunsets, and just walking. We have a lot of good memories here. The bait/souvenir shop was a very nice addition.
