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.

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

Great spot for walking off your dinner. I especially like wandering the path to the left of the pier. It is the perfect location to photograph the sun as it dips into the water. The colors are amazing -vivid pinks, oranges, And reds.

Great location to start our bike rides along the Bay. We rode everywhere in a bike friendly town. We will return.

The park and pier were in great shape, clean and well maintained. The pier is long with a great view of the bay. We enjoyed watching the pelicans diving for fish. The public restrooms on the pier were clean and kept in good order. We had a picnic under the trees in the park. The park was clean, the grass... More
