This is a long pier that stretches out from the Pensacola Beach. It is inexpensive to get onto, fun to watch the fisherman haul in their catches. In the summer, one can see many jelly fish swarm together under the pier by looking over the edges. It is a beautiful place to stand and watch the sunset over Pensacola Island.... More

You must plan to take a walk on this just before sunrise and spend some time looking at the natural beauty this place has to offer.

Want something enjoyable to do when the sun is setting in Pensacola is to walk the Pensacola Beach Gulf Pier. Hand-in-hand, we enjoyed the people, the fisherman and the fresh air with a touch of salt water in it. Will definitely do this again.

Great night time walk. Not a bunch of fishermen or women when there. Saw a couple small fish caught. But wasn't looking at fishing forecast either. Went just to wall the pier. Would be a great place for star viewing. Will be back.

My fiancé Sarah and I like to get naked in Miami at Haulover beach and wish we could do it at Pensacola beach too.

The fish weren't biting but a nice walk is always fitting. The 1471 feet long pier is great for picture taking and nice views of the beach and surfers. The smell wasn't bad - a surprise - so we had a nice time. $1.25 to walk.

You can purchase a day fishing license and try to catch the big one! or just take a nice stroll to the end of the pier, very beautiful gulf views.

Just a lovely peaceful morning stroll. What a view. You really can't get a better sky view than from the pier and the beach. Morning and night it's breathtaking. Lots of birds and people ambling by.

Great place to watch a sunset. For only $1.25 for an all day walking pass you can't beat the deal. Went in morning to watch fisherman, came back in afternoon just to set above water enjoy the weather and read a book. Sunset was really beautiful
