Didn't realize until afterwards there were two sides. The sound side and the ocean. We found a little restaurant that was on the sound side and sat out back and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. Afterwards, we walked on the pier and got ice cream and souvenirs.

Pensacola has changed and updated. It is a beach area near the Pier that everyone congregates on the weekends. It is a fun place, great seafood, great fishing, people watching, sightseeing and photographing the ocean. I highly recommend the Pensacola Beach Gulf Pier and Pensacola Beach.

Costs 1.25 a person to go onto the pier. Lots of people fishing from there and lots of others standing around, me included :-) There are several areas that need repair. Kind of scary walking on loose boards.

Loved the pier. Some boards appeared to be rickity which is quite scary considering there were sharks down below. YIKES! $1.50 per person, kids SHOULD be free in my opinion though. Will go back for sure.

It costs $1.25 to walk out on the pier, more to fish. We went out at sunset. The pier was crowded with people fishing. It was nice to be able to look out and see Pensacola Beach in each direction. It was also neat to be able to look down and see all the fish in the water. I'm not... More

On an impulse, we decided to take a walk here before we headed home on vacation. It is a shame that you have to pay to walk on the pier, but it is only $1.25 per person (you will have to pay more if you are going fishing). Most the people on the pier were fishing, and the pier offers... More

Very nice and relaxing. The water is always beautiful and many people fish from this pier. Worth the dollar.

Very commercialized, but worth a trip. We stopped in during a day trip to Pensacola Beach. The pier itself is older than Navarre, but rich in history. The views are spectacular. The water is perfect. We prefer a more relaxed atmosphere, but took a chance. While out on the end watching the fishermen we saw several dolphin and a couple... More
