Fun watching the sea birds beg for food from the fishermen

I love walking over the Pier and taking to different people who are passing their day catching or trying to catch from the the pier.

We had planned to stop at Pensacola Beach for a couple of hours while half way trough our Deep South Self Drive Tour glad we did, what a beautiful place. We paid a small fee to get on to the pier ( can`t remember exactly maybe $2 pp ).There were plenty of people fishing off the pier. I was surprised... More

I arrived at the Pensacola Beach Pier on November 5th, with the intention and hope to scatter some of my recently murdered daughter's ashes. A very nice employee at Crabbs showed us to the entrance of the Pier, and explained that the pier gets closed and locked up on November 1st. I do not understand why. However, we used the... More

A great place to take in the beauty of the Gulf Coast! It offers a beautiful view of the Pensacola coast and sunsets. Fishing is also an option from the pier.

I just loved this pier! I get horribly seasick, so it was great to feel like I was standing on the bow of a boat without rocking from side to side. It was also exciting to see a few people reel in a fish, although none were keepers. The view from the pier is so lovely, I visited twice during... More

If you like to fish, I recommend this pier. Easily accessed and you can sure get our into the gulf a little further than the beach.

Pensacola Beach is such a beautiful beach. It has become very commercialized over the years that I have spent in Pensacola. The Pier is a constant, although it has sustained damages from bad weather, i.e. Hurricanes over the years and it has been "knocked" down. It's always been rebuilt; each time better than the last and stands sturdy and proud... More

This beach really does have that white, near-powder soft sand! They have umbrellas and chairs that are put out and I understand they charge you to use them but I didn't use them. People played music in some places but it wasn't loud so folks seem to respect those around them. Cell phones work here which was a shock. I... More

Fabulous place to spend an hour. We were lucky enough to see dolphins swimming and playing very close to the Pier as they were trying to catch the bait that fishermen were using. We also saw a beautiful turtle. Magic! It just cost a couple of dollars to access the Pier and was totally worth this small fee. There was... More
