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

The pier extends about 1/4 mile into the Gulf and offers a great view of the water and beach. You can see various fish in the water. There are several benches where visitors can sit and enjoy the views and the breeze. Delightful! Walk ons pay $1.25. The experience is well worth the cost.

I have been here before and enjoyed watching people catch fish; this time, the fishing wasn't great but I DID see a lot of really neat wildlife!!! The water was relatively calm and extremely clear, affording good views of all sorts of small to medium sized fish. Also saw a number of sharks, a whole school of dolphins, dozens of... More

Perfect spot for watching air show...and great sunsets from above or below on beach... too many people though if you are not a people person..but great people watching otherwise.

Like everything else we experienced at Pensacola Beach, the Pier was clean and well maintained. For $1.25 per person, it was an inexpensive time well spent. We sat sharks from the pier and with the Gulf Water being so clear, they were easy to see. It was fun watching all types of fish being caught. Friendly people.

1400 feet into the Gulf this is one of the best piers in the Panhandle of Florida. Cost $1.25 to walk on the pier and $7 to fish for the day. Down side is no fish cleaning facilities or rest rooms on the pier. If you have to go you're in for a long walk. Up side is the Casino... More

Was very inexpensive to visit. View was exceptional. A lot of fishermen but they did not get in the way of walking.

It would be nice if the fishing community would be more considerate about two things: 1. Taking up the benches with your coolers and tackle (really, guys??) 2. Tossing your slimy, bleeding catches onto the pier to flop around while they asphyxiate to death and slime up the place. Aside from fisher[wo]men, walking the pier to watch the sunset is... More
