Golden Isles Piers

Any individuals utilizing these piers should maintain a six foot distance between one another in order to comply with COVID-19 safety precautions. The piers will be monitored by Glynn County Police Officers and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR). DNR does allow fishing from the piers during this event.

If you need a break from the sand, walk along one of our ocean or riverside piers—perfect for fishing, crabbing, or simply taking in the scenery. Enjoy the beauty of Georgia's beaches at the St. Simons Island pier and the Jekyll Island pier or channel Poet Sidney Lanier as you take in views of scenic marshland around Brunswick's fishing piers. Regardless of how you choose to enjoy the beaches and piers of the Golden Isles, the beauty of these fabled shores will provide wonderful memories to last for years.

Golden Isles - The Pier

St. Simons Island Pier

100 Mallery St, St Simons, GA 31522

Located in Pier Village at the end of Mallery Street, the St. Simons Island Pier provides outdoor lighting along its full length, making it a great location for an evening stroll after dinner along Georgia's beaches. The pier overlooks St. Simons Sound which is visited annually by North Atlantic Right Whales, usually seen between December and March as they migrate from the northeastern United States to the calving area in the southeastern United States. Other months of the year you can spot dolphins feeding along the coast and an occasional massive cargo ship passing by on its way to deliver hundreds of imported cars to the Port of Brunswick.

St. Simons Island Pier offers tray tables and water hoses along the railings for those fishing to prepare their bait or clean their catch. Benches along each side of the pier offer a place to sit and watch fishermen and crabbers reel in their day’s bounty, or simply enjoy the views of Georgia's beaches and Jekyll Island. Only a short stroll from the local hardware store and bait & tackle shop in the Pier Village, purchasing gear or bait is easy and convenient. St. Simons Island Pier is said to be one of only three ocean piers on the Georgia coast with the others being the Jekyll Island Pier and the Tybee Island Ocean Pier.
