Great view, lots of birds and fish, sunsets, sand, waves. You might even get to watch a pelican try to steal a fish from another bird

My husband and I visited this pier with friends while staying at the state park. I thought I read that it is the longest pier on the Gulf coast. We watched the sun set and people fishing. A perfect way to end the day!

Thank you for the great review! We are the biggest pier but 2nd place for longest :) Sunset is the absolute best time to be on the pier in my opinion!

Very nice pier but not without issues. If you just want to walk on the pier .. You pay $3.00. If you fish .. You pay $9.00. Because this pier is a Alabama State Park Pier, you have to have a fishing license. Other wise...More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We charge a 3.00 fee to sight see and to help with pier up-keep. To fish anywhere you must purchase a fishing license. Hope you will come back and see us again!
