Stay in the know: Top 5 Things to Do at the Kure Beach Pier

Kure Beach Pier, located on the pristine shores of North Carolina’s southern coast, is a beloved destination for beachgoers, anglers, and nature enthusiasts. Offering breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and a vibrant coastal atmosphere, Kure Beach Pier has something for everyone. In this guide, we’ll explore the top 5 things to do at Kure Beach Pier to help you make the most of your visit.

The Kure Beach Pier is home to many of Kure Beach's favorite fun-filled activities

1. Fishing: Kure Beach Pier is renowned for its excellent fishing opportunities. Whether you’re an experienced angler or a beginner, you can try your hand at catching various fish species. Rent fishing gear and purchase bait at the pier’s tackle shop, and then cast your line into the crystal-clear waters. Common catches include flounder, king mackerel, and bluefish.

A local’s paradise!

2. Pier Walking: A leisurely stroll along Kure Beach Pier is a quintessential experience. The 712-foot wooden pier extends over the Atlantic Ocean, providing stunning panoramic views of the coastline. Early morning or late afternoon walks offer the best opportunities to spot dolphins, pelicans, and other marine life. If you hungry, check out Ocean View Restaurant and Freddie’s Restaurant.

We recommend the delicious ice cream on your walk, located inside the pier

3. Go Pier Fishing at Night: Experience the magic of night fishing at the Kure Beach Pier. The pier’s well-lit structure provides an enchanting backdrop as you cast your line into the moonlit waves. Night fishing is not only a unique experience but also offers the chance to catch different species that are more active after dark.

4. Marine Life Observation: Keep an eye out for the diverse marine life that thrives around the pier. Dolphins are often spotted swimming nearby, and you might even catch a glimpse of sea turtles or rays. The clear waters make it an excellent spot for observing the underwater world. Kure Beach is also only a few miles way from the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher!

We once saw a sea turtle here the size of a Volkswagon Beetle!

5. Sunset Strolls and Photography: Catching a sunset at the Pier is a truly magical experience. The vibrant colors reflecting off the water create a breathtaking backdrop. Take a leisurely stroll along the pier and capture the beauty of the setting sun, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
