Beautiful Sunsets!

We spent an hour before sunset watching people fishing, sailboats and kayaks having fun. Enjoyed the sunset immensely, beautiful location and nice municipal pier.

We love the view across the bay. My son could wade in the wade and we could have our dog close but not on the beach.

There is a restaurant at the end with a oyster bar. The water was a little ruff and the bottom was churned up but it was a nice spot while in town

This is an exceptionally long pier. Halfway out is located Shux restaurant. The parking lot has some shade and there are picnic tables and there is an extensive trail that runs thru the park. The park has a large fountain and nice plantings. Several fishermen were out at the end.

You can't go to Fairhope without going to the Pier. And at sunset each day, it seems the locals rush to the pier for the beautiful sunset, so join in that, too!

We went there each day of our 3 day trip. Approximately 1450 feet long, the pier is an excellent place to enjoy the scenery of the bay, wildlife and meet some friendly people.

The pier seems to be a favorite of both visitors and locals. Friendly people willing to share fishing tips or take a family photo.

Interesting little stop on the scenic beach road around Mobile Bay. Couple of good restaurants in the area. They keep it clean and on a clear day you can see Mobile in the distance. Good place to start your morning as you work your way around the bay.

What a beautiful pier! We had a lovely time wandering around the park and pier. It is so well maintained and has washrooms available. Everyone we met was friendly. Wonderful part of Fairhope.
