Step inside and explore Jennette’s Pier when you need a break from the beach. This 1,000-foot concrete and wood pier features three large windmills that help power the facility, which includes an aquarium and full-service fishing pier. The Pier shop offers beach supplies, gifts, drinks, snacks, and coffee along with fishing tackle.
Getting hungry? Eat fresh seafood at Sam & Omie’s, one of the oldest eateries on the Outer Banks, or grab a classic burger and fries at Dune Burger, both just across the street from Jennette’s Pier. Take the kids to play at Whalebone Park, which is behind Dune Burger. The playground features a large boat play structure, along with swings and other play structures.
