We walked down the pier after dinner at Hook'd and it was stunning! You do have to pay but my boys loved watching the fishermen and my husband and I enjoyed the beautiful sunset. Wish we would have had time to return and do some fishing of our own with our boys. Next time!

I will never in my life return to Panama City Beach, especially this pier. I have been to PCB more than I can count, but it is disgusting now. Trash every where!! It literally hurt my heart to see how little people care for such a beautiful creation. It seems like the city would pick up trash daily, but that... More

Great place to get your vacation fishing fix in when you can't get away from the family too long....it adjoins Pier Park (biggest shopping destination in PCB) so drop off the women for a few hours and catch anything from catfish to Tuna! Bait store near end of pier is so convenient.

Like many public piers, you do have to pay. My son and his buddy spend much of their days fishing off this pier. They met many friendly people. Younger children loved watching to see what they caught. This is a very nice place and although they stayed there very late some nights, it was a safe place.

My family and I took a vacation to Panama City Beach and decided to go to the Pier to catch the sunset. Once we got there, we were disappointed to find out that you had to pay $3 per person. There was a really long line just to pay and get onto the pier so we decided to not actually... More

We walked up and down the pier, watching the fish and dolphins and talking to the fisherman. 5 kids ages 4-14 and they enjoyed spending a couple of hours just hanging out and watching the ocean and people during sunset. Next time we'll rent a few rods!

Once you find a parking spot, it is a short walk to sand and the ocean. We went several times during our vacation.
