You can spend the better part of a day at and around the Fairhope Pier. Starting in the morning you can fish or watch those who are fishing. Of special interest is a small group using cast nets. Try throwing one and you'll hold in high regard anybody who actually catches fish using it. There is usually a group of... More

The pier is a wonderful place on the water. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the view and it is close to the bay front parklands park. A short walk from down town.

Great place to relax, walk, watch birds catching fish and to eat seafood as well. Beside the restaurant you can rent water toys and they have a water voley field as well.

Very pleasant walk along this pier. There is a picnic area and a small beach. There is also a small restaurant which was not open when we walked about 10.30 am. Plenty of parking. Spoke to quite a few fishermen and locals.

We drove down to the pair where there was plenty of parking. We were hoping to be able to buy a coffee on the pier but they didn't open until 11.00am. We walked out to the end with a cool breeze blowing into the bay. Just lovely. The garden and fountain at the entry to the pier were also just... More

I love this area of Fairhope, the pier is nice, so is the pic nic area and the small beach area. We came over here in the evenings to eat dinner and just hand out and watch the people fish. It was very relaxing...

The pier has fishing, rental boats, kayaks, water volleyball and is a great place to take photos of Mobile Bay. Gambino's opened a restaurant which is pretty good as well.

About one quarter mile in length. Really nice for a stroll. Always some people fishing to watch. Supposedly nice restaurant, but all I can vouch for is the beer at the wonderful bar.

My husband took me to Fairhope for my birthday. Beautiful views and walk down the pier. The fountain nearby is gorgeous! Worth the trip.

Sunset was beautiful. Pier offered dining and more. Nice beach area for small kids, playground, and clean public restrooms. Very played back feel and not crowded. Will definitely come back.
