Folly Beach Pier

The new Edwin S. Taylor Folly Beach Fishing Pier pays tribute to the previous Lowcountry icon while welcoming our community and visitors for generations to come. Breathtaking views of the "Edge of America" are just some of the possibilities at the Folly Beach Fishing Pier, where you can find some of the best saltwater fishing in the area. The pier stretches 1,049 feet into the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and is 25 feet wide and 22 feet above sea level.
