This is a great place for walking or just sitting to watch the bay. We discovered that up above on hill that there are benches & tables which would also be great for viewing.

The fountain, the rose garden and pier offer a great place for solitude, or family pics. The nearby beach would make a wonderful day trip for families with children. Loved it!

We visit the pier as often as possible. The view, water and many different species of birds are wonderful. It has many walk paths besides the pier itself. The sunsets are beautiful. Fun watching the fishing, and of course great places to eat. Can beat it, spring, summer, fall or winter.

The whole Fairhope experience of walking and shopping was good even though it rained. We left some of our vacation dollars there but were really frightened at the public restrooms at the municipal pier. With the attention to detail that the town encompasses, this was a real disappointment.

I have seen the changes at Fairhope Pier over the last couple of decades. It is a great place to go to during the day or night. Lots of people go there, some fish there, the restaurant is great also. It is a nice walk to the end and some people use it for part of their exercise routine. There... More

I have lived in Fairhope several different times and the pier is the place I go to for peace, exercise, fishing and socializing. The duck pond, beach and pavillion make for a lovely picnic or family gatherng. Most beautiful sunsets!! Great walking trails. Fishing is really fun, or just watching those fishing. Great place to meet locals and visitors from... More

We walk our dogs here almost every evening. South Beach Park is paved and level and attracts families, dog walkers, picnickers, runners and anyone who wants to enjoy the view of Mobile Bay. The pier is the place to stroll and fish. The fountain is beautiful showcasing the huge American flag. The beach is just a short walk down the... More
