Kure Beach Pier reviews
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.

The gift shop has nice things. However it's $8 to fish with 1 pole. Then the teenage boy tried to tell my husband he HAD to staple a ticket on his person. We're from WV and that just doesn't sound...

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!
It was simply great and ended up going here every day morning and evening for our visit to Kure beach. Less crowded and awesome view. Must see!!! Very nice park just in-front of it where you can take your little one.
First time here today. Loved everything about it. Enjoyed sitting and watching families play on the sand with kids running away from the incoming tides..squealing with laughter. Caught sight of some surfer dudes trying to catch a wave. Fishermen chilling barefoot, lounged back in their chairs on the pier. It was wonderful... All of it.
By far my favorite Cape Fear beach. Does Wrightsville have better water quality? Absolutely. Does Carolina Beach have more stuff to do on a beach vacation? Of course. But Kure Beach is special. Especially as a local. For one, the pier is free to walk on. And second, parking is free during the peak season after 5PM EST. After 5, there’s plenty of parking. I love going out to Kure after work for a nice 1 hour walk by the water. Lastly, it’s much quieter. Especially in the evening. Exactly the kind of place you go, reflect, and just chill out. As an added bonus, Fort Fisher is a short hop away. Leave the artificial bustle of Carolina Beach behind. Stop struggling to find a decent spot to set up on the beach at Wrightsville. Come to Kure!
