Lynnhaven Fishing Pier closing this weekend; Deal to sell complete

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A deal to sell the soon-to-close Lynnhaven Fishing Pier is complete.

WAVY’s Matt Gregory reports the land is being sold to Westminster-Canterbury, which has a nearby retirement community. The last day for the pier will be Sunday.

The Lynnhaven Fish House will close later in the year, but will stay open through the holiday season.

“We now have more room to serve the growing demographic of older adults in our city through our faith-based, non-profit community,” Sandra Parker wrote. “The additional parking will be a great and immediate help to us.”

There no current plans to reopen the restaurant.

“It is important to note that public beach access is not affected by the sale of the Lynnhaven Pier Corporation,” Parker wrote. “All deeds and rights of way will be the same after the sale is closed.”
