Went at sunset tonight and the view was terrific! Joined by many other folks who came to look, but not eat at the restaurant on the pier.

Throughly enjoyed the visit to the pier. Fun to watch both the people and the wildlife. The rose garden provides an added touch of color.

A beautiful view of Mobile Bay. We watched a lightning storm off in the distance from the end of the pier on a warm late summer evening. Then we noticed a chilling phenomenon, packs of people including couples with babies in strollers were hunting Pokemon with their smart phones! So, great people watching too, I guess.

The Fairhope Pier and park is a gathering place for locals and visitors. It is a beautiful view of Mobile Bay, with a beautiful fountain and flowers as you enter the park area. You can take your dog on great walks here and there is a beach area for sun bathing. At night, you can walk to the end of... More

Very nice long walk to the end of this scenic pier. There is a little park nearby and a playground for the kids. Fairhope is a lovely little town in the suburbs of Mobile.

We ate at the seafood restaurant on the pier. Great view of the sunset on Mobile Bay. Food was pretty good but a little pricey.

This area of Fairhope is really beautiful and well maintained. Nice place for a walk. Benches along the way to sit and watch the bay. Definitely a relaxing outing.

I recently partook in a 5k walk here. It was really pleasant. The pier was well maintained. It's got benches, bathrooms, shady areas, fish cleaning stations, a little snack bar...basically everything you could need on a pier. Throw in the breathtaking views from every angle and it's surrounding parks and you can have a great day. There's a duck pond,... More
