I highly recommend taking a stroll, brisk walk or jog on Fairhope’s Big Pier...you will enjoy seeing fisherman bringing in their catch, while pelicans, blue herons and seagulls hang around to catch a possible windfall... people watching is also a fun past time there.

Nice clean scenic little park and pier. My wife and I grabbed some food at a local cafe and brought it down to the park for a pleasant lunch. We were surprised that not many people were enjoying it at the time.
