Transit Station
“This pier was established over a 100 years ago and very nearly was destroyed, except for locals who banded together and saved the pier before it was demolished. Over 800 meters in length, you can walk to the end and enjoy the most amazing sunset and sunrises ever. Pelicans abound at the end of the day being fed by the local's fishing. Well worth the visit and the walk”
