Standing 25 feet above sea level, this magnificent concrete structure represents the latest in storm-resistant technology. It is the first pier in North Carolina able to sustain 200 mph winds, and its windows are built to withstand storm gales up to 150 mph. The light poles consist of spun concrete, and even the trash receptacles are made of stone. The pier is open year round and has a gift shop, arcade and restaurant that serves yummy sunrise breakfasts, lunches and dinners with indoor/outdoor seating. General fishing costs $8 per rod. Walk-on admission is $1.50 for adults and 75¢ for children younger than 12. The fishing pier is open 24 hours a day.
