We had fireworks right off the Pier on Wednesday nights. I hope they keep this tradition going. Beautiful over the Gulf of Mexico.

I was disappointed that we did not get to see any sharks or dolphins that everyone talks about seeing. It costs $2... More

It's okay, a bit crowded and loud from all of the kids. But once you get past the fee and the kids bumping into you while running around unsupervised, it's not so bad.

You pay $2 to walk the pier. it's nice but you're constantly stepping over fishermen and a lot of people set their poles and leave them... Not really kid friendly.

Charges $2 per person just to go out and walk on. Dirty and the bathrooms at the end were full and over flowing, very gross.

The pier is nice and clean. It is a good place for fishing if you're into it. Also, you will not regret it if you had a romantic walk and view of sunset with your love. Pier is also good for families.

Only $2 /person to walk the pier so that was good! Water was beautiful. Got to see 3 Dolphins, a sea turtle, lots of fish and about 4 jelly fish. Was really hot the day we walked it but a really neat pier.

We were in the Destin, Florida area for a week at the end of March 2015 and visited this fishing pier twice. We enjoy walking the pier at Clearwater Beach and this one is similar. It cost a couple of dollars to get past the bait shop or you can rent a reel and buy bait to catch a little... More

We had a great time at the pier...we saw dolphins, sea turtles, jelly fish, tons of fish and even a shark! We fished one night off the pier and saw fireworks another night. Highly recommend you visit this place.
