This is a nice area to spend some time after the sunrise pictures. There is a nice public beach that offers rentals of kayaks, SUP, etc. The bike path goes quite a distance and the garden club is nearby. There is also a wildlife sanctuary across the street, but it was not open when we visited.

Nice, long, very large pier that you can bike down or take your dogs. Plenty of benches. Palm tress at the start of the pier make for some lovely photo ops. The water at the pier is crystal clear. Ideal vantage point to see the sunrise.

It doesn't have the striped cement buoy for a photo op, but this is the actual Southernmost spot in Key West. During the winter the pier is a great alternative to Mallory Square to watch the sunset. You won't be deluged by the crowds, and you will be more likely to meet the locals. Folks also tend to let their dogs off leash here so be prepared for friendly pooches. This is also the best place to watch the sun rise.

Each trip I make to Key West must include one early morning at White Street Pier. It's next to Higgs Beach, so you see the homeless people sleeping in the picnic table pavillions there, but they don't bother you. There is a very moving AIDS memorial at the entrance to the pier. You will see early morning dog-walkers, joggers, bicyclists, fishermen. But I go for the best view of sunrise. Once I hit a spectacular view of simultaneous sunrise and moonset. Bright sky illuminating to the east and dark sky with almost full moon to the west. Both were punctuated with clouds that made the light even more interesting. It felt like being on two different planets at the same time! You have to be lucky to catch that scenario, but if the weather is good and you like early morning, there's always good sunrise views here! As everywhere in Key West, people are friendly and will talk and offer suggestions to go restaurants and locals' spots.

Loved the White St Pier. We rode our bikes here every morning to watch the sunrise. We have some absolutely gorgeous pictures. It is very mellow in the morning. We would watch the sunrise and then get our workout in. We took our resistance bands and jump ropes - there is plenty of room. Is is also a good place to run. The pier is also home to the Key West Garden Club and there is a charming beach-side botanical garden that should not be missed if you are there. Then you can pick up the bike trail and ride ocean side for a few miles.

Beautiful, peaceful and not packed with people.

The pier is located in the same proximity as the West Martello Tower and the Key West Wildlife facility so you can visit all three on the same trip.

The White Street Pier is a long, modern pier. There are plenty of benches to sit. There is the Key West AIDS Memorial at the beginning of the pier. We enjoyed watching the wind surfers from the pier.

I was surprised by how big this pier was. The walkway opened up into a large square area so there was plenty of room to walk around. The day we visited was overcast, but the sun reflected off the water and was a marvelous sight to see. Perfect place to watch fishing ships or a sunset.

When you walk to the end of the pier, you can get two very different views. The first is to look out to the water and see that there is nothing around you. The second is to look back and see the island in all its beauty. Definitely a worthwhile place to visit, especially because it is free.

It's so relaxing to stroll out on this long, wide pier. We always see interesting aquatic life. We've see squid and last time saw two really large puffer fish chasing each other around. There are benches for sitting, but not any shade. Some folks like to fish off the bridge. It's also good for sunsets some times of the year.
