For spectacular views and great fishing visit the Pensacola Beach Gulf Pier. A wide platform at the end of the pier allows anglers of all ages
to try their hand at “deep sea” fishing in the 20 ft. deep waters below.
If you don’t have your own gear, you can rent from the on-site bait and tackle shop.
They’ll happily tell you what’s biting and outfit you to get in on the catch.
If fishing isn’t on your agenda, a stroll to the end of the pier provides amazing views of the beach and the marine life below.
It’s also a great spot to snap a photo and watch the sunset.
There are separate charges for fishermen and observers. Check the pier’s website for details and hours of operation.
At the foot of the pier you’ll find excellent coastal fare at Casino Beach Bar and Grill, beach gear and souvenirs at
Innerlight Surf & Sport and cool treats at Duke’s Hawaiian Shaved Ice.
