Stretching about 600 feet into the Atlantic Ocean, Avon Fishing Pier opened its doors in 1963 and was the final pier to be built on Hatteras Island. It’s now part of the Koru Village campus of activities. With its excellent fishing, unbeatable surf and breathtaking scenery, Avon Pier remains one of Cape Hatteras' most frequented locations. Each year thousands of families come to the pier to make lasting memories. Besides the fishing, surfing and sights, Avon Pier also features a fully stocked snack shop, clothing shop, gift shop, tackle, bait, rod and reel combos and rentals to suit all your fishing needs. It also hosts weekly Kids Fishing Frenzy tournaments in the summer, the Fish Like a Girl women’s only tournament in October, and the PBR Classic tournament in November. But no worries if you’re not a family of fishermen — there are many more activities on Koru Village's campus, so drop by to find something everyone in the family will enjoy. If you’re new to fishing, the pier’s experienced staff will be more than happy to help get you started. Visitors and residents are invited to sight see and fish at the pier every year from April to December.
