Sticks out into Mobile Bay. Had a very good restaurant on the pier. After dark, you can see the lights of Mobile around 20 miles across the bay.

Beautiful area, we love the Fairhope area, and stop by there once a year on our way to Destin. We love driving down to the pier, and beach area to watch the sun set, this is a perfect place to do so.

What a wonderful place to view the bay! It's family friendly with easy access to parking and the walking/bike trails are a plus!
