Try Pier Fishing in Virginia Beach at Local Spots

Virginia Beach is best known for its sandy beaches, iconic boardwalk, and food scene. To many others, Virginia Beach fishing piers with their barnacles, briny breezes, and hopeful fisherfolk are the star attractions. When you’re looking to have a fun day out pier fishing, here are the best spots near our apartments in Virginia Beach.

Virginia Beach Fishing Pier

The most famous fishing pier in Virginia Beach is definitely the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier. The privately-owned 880-foot long wooden fishing pier has been around for over 70 years right off the iconic Virginia Beach Boardwalk. The owners recently scrapped plans to turn this weather-worn pier into a full-scale tourist attraction with restaurants and rides. Instead, it received a facelift and will remain one of the top choices for fishing in Virginia Beach. 

No licenses are required for pier fishing, though there is an entrance fee. The pier is open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. from April to October. Visit the newly renovated Pier House Bait and Tackle to rent equipment or buy bait and fishing gear.

Ocean View Fishing Pier

Not to be outdone, the Ocean View Fishing Pier has staked out its own claim to fame. This 1690-foot fishing pier is currently the longest free-standing pier in the country. A large restaurant and shop with an open second-floor deck and stunning views of the Chesapeake Bay mark the entrance. After the busy restaurant, it still retains its original sun-bleached charm. 

It's mostly filled with friendly locals fishing for croaker, flounder, bass, and trout, with a mix of sightseers milling about. The privately-owned pier has a day-use fee during the open hours from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Bait and tackle are available for purchase in the tackle shop, as are all-day equipment rentals and seasonal passes.

Sandbridge Little Island Fishing Pier

Sandbridge Little Island Fishing Pier is a relative newcomer as local Virginia Beach fishing piers go. The city completed this 400-foot pier in 2006. Though it is smaller than other piers in Virginia Beach, it boasts natural surroundings and newer well-maintained facilities. 

The area around the pier is part of the 122-acre Little Island Park and features extensive beach access to the north and south for swimming, surfing, and fishing. A large parking area with showers and bathrooms separates the pier from the Back Bay portion of the park. Here you will find numerous amenities like picnic areas, grills, playgrounds, and more. There are no bait and tackle shops for supplies at the pier, so pick some up before heading out.

If you want to get an early start to your day of pier fishing in Virginia Beach, stop by Pour Favor Coffee Shop for a hot cup of coffee to get going. When you're searching for apartments near Tidewater Community College, contact us. We would love to show you around.
