“Fun, fun!!!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

You have to check out the pier while here on the gulf coast, it's awesome. The sunset views are great! It's also fun to watch and talk to all the people fishing. You get to see sharks and many other kinds of fish hanging out near the pier and we got to see a resident great blue heron who posed for pics for us. We went twice in a week, it's really worth it...

“Like to fish?”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

The pier access is easy with ample parking, no fee. You can access the beach and no swimming allowed for 100 meters. Is a great place for those who fish! clean restrooms at beginning of pier also!

“A mile long pier!”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

This pier has to be one of the nicest along the Gulf of Mexico. We have fished several times and witnessed many species of fish being caught. Everyone is your friend and accommodating! Good luck!

“The pier”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

We liked visiting the pier. My kids enjoyed it but got bored with it quickly. If we had been fishing we would have stayed longer. We saw some dolphins during the day. My husband and I went back that evening and saw some sharks and stingrays. Only thing we would of done differently is we would've definitely went fishing.

“Relaxing night at the pier”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We went after dinner and enjoyed a nice night watching people fish. Small fee to get on the pier for adults, but kids under 11 get in free.
