5) Compose so the stairway is leading the eye somewhere interesting. For example, maybe there's a child with a sand bucket at the bottom, etc.

pretty harsh waters for a child with sand bucket ;) but i get the idea and agree with suggestion.

I would try your #1 and 2. Also either have the stair totally centered or a distinct angle possibly getting a portion of the pier in view. No vignette would be better.:D
