The pier was inaugurated in 2013 as part of the revival of the city. Financed by the federal government it was designed by a famous architect in the form of a sail with lights that cast a welcome glow. About 200 feet long the walkway is of cement for a smooth walk and roundabout around the sail. The end of the pier has many uses - water taxis departures, fishing, day tours begin here to go to other beaches like Yelapa, Mismaloya, or around the bay. Even though there are signs for no jumping young boys were doing just that and having a joyous time.When we were there the beach was very crowded with every age group enjoying the surf and water. Located at the southern end of the new Malecon on Muertos beach. There have been two previous piers. One in the 1950s or early 1960s when cruise ships would anchor. In 1963 John Huston used to load construction materials and equipment to go to Mismaloya to build the set and then film Night of the Iguanas. As there were no roads then the crew and cast also departed and arrived via the pier. There was a second pier in 1990 which I know nothing about. At night you can see the lighted sail for many miles. It's an awesome place to watch the sunset, have dinner or a drink nearby, take a swim or just settle for a stroll. Sun, sand, or a stroll but if you are fair skinned, watch out for the sunburn.
