“Fairhope Pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Mobile Bay drains rivers which are muddy, the bay is muddy but NOT filthy as one reviewer stated. There are lots of fish in the bay, many fisherman fish from the pier.
Great place for a walk, sunsets are great.

“Beautiful Mobile Bay views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

There are great views all along the trails that intersect at the Fairhope Pier. Early (7:00 AM) mornings in June mean lots of locals out for a walk, run, bike, etc. Y'all, they are so friendly! Just say hi to everyone you pass.

To the north are the beaches, to the south are views of the water and cottages and homes lining the bay. Either way this is a great place to visit when in Fairhope.

We had free parking, but it appears the beach parking area may have a charge: no one was on duty when we were there on a weekday morning.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We strolled along the bay and on the pier. There were many, many benches along the way, which allowed us to watch the sunset over the bay. It was very clean and beautiful! On Memorial Day, we watched and listened to the Baldwin Pops perform beautiful songs as the sun was setting. It was the perfect way to appreciate the beauty of Fairhope and celebrate Memorial Day.

“Nice walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The Fairhope Pier is at a gorgeous location. Many people walk on the pier for exercise, or go fishing. There are bathrooms that could use updating and a restaurant on the pier.
