Dania Beach Pier stands out from other piers because it is predominately a fishing pier. Even if you’re a novice at fishing off the side of a pier, Dania Beach Pier makes it easy for you. While fishing or simply walking the pier you also get to take in the sparkling blue of the ocean and the pretty coastline of Dania Beach.
The pier has fishing pole rentals onsite and bait you can buy, making it easy for visitors to join in the fishing fun. While you’re likely not going to set any world records with what you catch off Dania Beach Pier, there is a variety of fish you might find at the end of your line including Yellowtail Snapper, Grouper, Bluefish and many others.
For those who want to do some night fishing, the pier is lit so you’re able to see what you’re doing. Dania Beach Pier has other amenities as well, including restrooms, benches and tables for cleaning fish. In addition, there is an adjacent restaurant called Quarterdeck where you can get a bite to eat or a drink.
