AVON, N.C. - Summer is heating up on the Outer Banks and the Avon Fishing Pier is now open for the season!

The pier is a popular attraction in Avon as it spans into the Atlantic Ocean and provides beautiful views and a great place to fish.

Visitors can enjoy the pier no matter what they would like to do, fish or just watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee.

The pier is located in the Koru Villiage at 41001 NC-12 in Avon.

Last year the pier had a comeback after being closed for months due to damage from storms and high tides during a Nor'easter. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic it was still able to open, while implementing COVID-19 restrictions and regulations.
