Folly Beach Pier

Breathtaking views of the "Edge of America" are just some of the possibilities at the Edwin S. Taylor Folly Beach Fishing Pier, where you can find some of the best saltwater fishing in the area. The pier stretches 1,045 feet into the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and at 25-feet wide and 23-feet above sea level, the pier is the second longest on the east coast.
