The Melbourne Beach Pier: Melbourne Beach, Florida

The Melbourne Beach Pier is an historic pier in Melbourne Beach, Florida. It is located at Ocean Avenue and Riverside Drive and the pier extends out onto the Indian River.

The Melbourne and Atlantic Railroad Company built the pier in 1889. On April 12, 1984, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

In early times, Melbourne Beach was the only access to the Atlantic Ocean beach for many miles north and south. The barrier island was nothing but a jungle back then. A ferry boat owned by the Beaujean family brought passengers over from Melbourne and dropped them off at the Melbourne Beach Pier. A narrow gauge railroad with a push car took passengers from the pier down Ocean Avenue to the ocean.

This is the last remaining set of the tracks that still remain at the pier to this day.
