This is a great place to experience the local charm of fairhope. Walk on the pier, pictures at the fountain, good eats, most beautiful sunsets. Fun for any age. Watch the locals cast their nets and reel them in for all to see. Great family fun!

I lived in Fairhope, AL 30 years ago as a teenager. Was dying to go back and see how things have changed. Walking on the Fairhope Municipal Pier and the smaller Orange Avenue Pier was like traveling back in time. Nothing has changed. The quaintness and beauty of the place has remained untainted. Even the little hamburger and sandwich shop... More

We drove over from Gulf Shores for the day and did some shopping and eating and ended the day with a walk on the pier to watch the sunset. Absolutely beautiful. Very clean. Enjoyed reading the history of the pier. Also thought the benches along the pier were pretty awesome...each one had a memorial or dedication to someone.

This is my favorite little beach. Its about $6.00 to park and it is well worth it. They use the funds to keep the area clean, and there is a bath room, plenty of garbage cans, picnic tables, parking spaces.....very nice. A pier with a restaurant. Very close to town for shopping.

You can eat dinner, get a snowcone, fish or just watch people fish anytime. The beach and park area are very nice also.

We loved walking this pier while we were visiting. One night we watched a spectacular sunset and the following day we got to see some dolphins swimming along

We are locals and LOVE the pier. It's great for a long walk, surrounded by the beautiful Mobile Bay. The scenery is second to none. If you have a dog, the pier and adjacent park area are perfect for a canine stroll. If you can catch a sunset from the pier, you will never forget it!

Wouldn't swim here, as the bay is gross, but the views were beautiful. With the pier and park, along with the long wooden docks, there was no shortage of photo opportunities. Love it!
