It costs 1.25 per person, the wristband is good for the day. it's a walk over the water, you can see what people are catching, look into the water see huge jelly fish, saw some sharks on a few lines, schools of fish and dolphins.

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!

We walked the boards and found really nice restaurants and shops to enjoy. Across the street is Pensacola Beach which was very clean and the water was a lovely aquamarine. While we did not eat there, the restaurant.."Hemingways" look like a good place to grab a bite and enjoy a cool drink while looking out over the bay.

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.
