There is a charge to enter this pier. $1.25 per person per day. There is also a fee to fish off the pier. This is a great place to watch sunrises and sunsets.

Nothing special here. Just a pier. Not worth the couple bucks to walk out on. Close your eyes...imagine walking a couple hundred feet out into the ocean...you're about 20-30 feet up....you can see the beach, the buildings and the water. All the things you could see from the shore. I would have been better served to buy a beer...

This is a very nice pier. Charges $1.50 to walk and more to fish, but it good all day to come and go. Pier was very clean and maintained. Did not walk all the way to the end!! Was there is the early morning and hardly NOBODY was there. I think this is probably one of the nicer piers on... More

Pensacola Beach is a great place for an ocean swim. Normally, the waves are very mild and the water warm. Very gentle slope off the beach. Sand is beautiful and the beach is well kept. Public restrooms and showers are available.

Certain times of the year, certain fish run. You need to check which ones are "running" and being caught. It's a BEAUTIFUL view, even IF you don't catch any fish. Also, there are some GREAT restaurants to eat at, in the area!

My husband and I walked the pier in the morning. It costs $1.25 per person but it's worth it because you get a wristband that is good all day. The man who sold us our wristbands had zero personality but his conduct was professional. It seems like a long walk to the end but there are great views from the... More

If you like to fish the ocean then here is a good spot. It is also a good place to get some vacation photos for your social status. See Dolphins, jelly fish and other fishes swimming about below. Great sunset views.

A great place to stroll and watch the sunset! We also saw a small shark and some dolphins! Well worth the $1.25 walking fee!
