This is a very nice pier. There were only a few fisherman the day we visited and there's a new restaurant about to open on the pier.

Wonderful sunsets. Stroll along and meet lots of people who actually stop to talk to you. Fish if you want to. Feed the Pelicans or just relax

The pier is a great place to see the beautiful sunsets Mobile has to offer. You can see the skyline of Mobile and watch the Pelicans. If you have a fishing license you can drop a line off the pier and try you luck at hauling in "the big one" or watch what others are bringing in. There's usually a... More

Nice long pier with a good view of Mobile Bay. The restaurant on the pier is being renovated, along with the restrooms, but there are soda machines for the thirsty and a unisex bathroom for those who don't mind sharing.

Nice pier... Did not like the CLOSED restaurant on the pier! Trash on pier! The water fountain in the parking area was really nice! Great place to watch birds.

On a road trip searching for a beach to have fun on and this popped up on the gps. It cost $8 per car, so going in a van or large SUV is advised. The sand is light brown and so is the water but it's a quite spot that isn't crowded,and there was an ice cream truck there driving... More
