The Fairhope Pier is a beautiful place to take a stroll. We took in the fountain today, which was surrounded by blooming roses, then we wandered the pier and watched some fishermen throw cast nets and checked out the storm moving north through Mobile. Very relaxing place.

We visited the town of Fairhope's public pier. It is a well made structure and great location to fish the Mobile bay. The whole area is a well maintained garden area. It is worth the short trip.

I absolutely adore the sunsets from the pier looking over Mobile bay. Many people gather and just commune with nature as it evolves from day to dusk. There is no better way to spend an evening in Fairhope.

I enjoyed the area around the pier with all the ducks, geese and other foul. Roses were not in bloom this year but they were last year when we were there and are beautiful. I have family in the area and they send pictures of special events and sunsets which are gorgeous. Very well kept.

It was a beautiful location. Flowers, a fountain, and a beautiful pier that stretched over the bay. Lots of fishing, and even a stretch of beach for playing in the water, laying out, or volleyball. The only problem was the water had a bit of a smell to it, which slightly ruined the experience. But a beautiful location for pictures.

Great park area around the pier. Nice place to pack a sandwich from Publix and watch the sunset. The pier is very long given the shallowness of Mobile Bay. Come fish for Mullet, Flounder maybe even a Red or two.

What more can you say about an iconic landmark that stands as a symbol of Fairhope. The sunsets here are legendary. It seems like the whole town gathers here every evening to enjoy them. I live in Missouri, but I yearn for the shore of Mobile Bay. I make it a ritual every night to get on my computer to... More

The sunsets here are awesome and if you went to the pier just for that it would be enough, but there is so much more. Crabbing, fishing, eating and enjoying the bay is an awesome experience at The Pier!

Took a stroll on the pier--more that 1400 feet long. It was a fun walk. Love being on the pier in about 20 knot breeze. If you come to Fairhope you should walk on the pier. Flew a kite in the circle at the start of the pier. Great wind, great walk, great day.
