Jacksonville Beach Pier
The Jacksonville Beach Pier partially re-opened on March 1, 2018. The pier was closed due to damage sustained during Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 and additional damage from Hurricane Irma in September 2017.
The Jacksonville Beach Fishing Pier, nearly a quarter of a mile long* (*approximately 625 ft. is currently open while additional repairs are made to the remaining storm damaged section), offers visitors close up views of the Atlantic Ocean and anglers access to deep-water species of fish. Open from 6 AM to 10 PM, it offers a concession and bait shop, restrooms, and is wheel-chair accessible.
