As of September 2021, Sunset Point is closed until further notice due to damage sustained during Hurricane Ida. Open 24 hours and free to the public. The Sunset Point pier extends over 400 feet onto Lake Pontchartrain with views of the world-famous Causeway Bridge, and, as the name hints, a great place to watch awe-inspiring sunsets. The pier has public restrooms, picnic tables onshore and water connections at the end of the pier for cleaning fish. No pets, alcohol, cast nets or traps. Directions: From Monroe St., turn south on Massena St. and follow to parking lots on Lake Pontchartrain.
