Folly Fishing Pier

The Folly Beach Edwin S. Taylor Pier is the centerpiece  of Folly Beach. By name alone that would not be considered an exciting fact to new visitors.  Perhaps that’s because “fishing pier” does not completely define it.   

The Folly Beach Pier is 24 feet wide, extends more than 1,045 feet into the Atlantic Ocean, and is 23 feet above sea level. A 7,500 sq ft diamond shaped two level sheltered platform gives the pier a distinctive look. It is the second in size to only one other pier on the east coast.

Yes, fishing does happen here, a lot. Visit anytime during open hours and fish or join in on a monthly tournament. If you are visiting and do not have equipment, that’s not a problem! Rod rental and tackle are available on site.

Looking for something to eat? On site is Locklear’s Beach City Grill, a full service restaurant. Sit out on the deck and take in the surroundings, or catch some AC inside at the bar or one of the many private tables.

Not ready to go home after the sun goes down? Put on your dancing shoes and grab tickets to the Moonlight Mixer, held on the pier April through September, usually from 9-11pm on scheduled weekends. To see the schedule, click here.

Needless to say there is plenty to do and see at the Folly Beach Pier. Do you have an experience to share or are you planning to visit? No matter if you were married on the pier or if you just stopped in from lunch, we would love to hear about it.

We will be adding pics here soon, but feel free to check out our many shots of the pier here. If you have photos that you would like added, email them to photos@follybeach.com.
