Pier View North has much more sand than beaches south of the pier. This means more space for setting up chairs and beach towels for relaxing. Fewer events and activities occur at Pier View North, allowing for a more quiet atmosphere. During the summer, part of this beach is closed to surface (blackballed), but open to all other water activities.

This beach has two lifeguard towers (Towers 2 and 4). Surfing and swimming areas are marked with checkered flags and signs.

  • Volleyball courts (provide your own net)
  • Small pay parking lot right off the Strand

Pier View North is great for the beach goer who wants to be close to the Pier without the big crowds and noise.
