One of the Best Beach Views from the Newly Renovated Jacksonville Beach Pier

The Jacksonville Beach Pier is officially open after three years of closure following damage from Hurricanes Irma and Matthew.

The Pier is now 12 feet taller, which will help protect it from storm surge and withstand future storms. While the bait shop isn’t open yet, there are bathrooms in a nearby parking lot.

The Pier is open to pedestrians as well as anglers, who can fish for free daily from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. There are certain restrictions in place, and these are subject to change. Anglers are only allowed three rods when on the Pier. There are police officers on-site to ensure that this new restriction is followed. Currently, no cast netting is allowed. For the most up-to-date information about the Pier, visit the City of Jacksonville Beach website.

Other restrictions include: no diving or jumping, no sitting on railing⁠, no alcohol⁠, no bicycles, skateboards or rollerblades⁠, no feeding the birds⁠ and no pets (except service animals)⁠.
