We loved walking this pier while we were visiting. One night we watched a spectacular sunset and the following day we got to see some dolphins swimming along

We are locals and LOVE the pier. It's great for a long walk, surrounded by the beautiful Mobile Bay. The scenery is second to none. If you have a dog, the pier and adjacent park area are perfect for a canine stroll. If you can catch a sunset from the pier, you will never forget it!

Shux restaurant had great food and perfect view! Inside was much like an old diner but the deck offered real feel for being on the water.

The Fairhope Pier is widely used by walkers, gawkers and anglers. The herons who stalk the dock for fish scraps are usually up for a photo and can be a little aggressive looking for goodies. It's a great walk, very beautiful and there are limited bathroom facilities. There are also benches along the way if you need to rest or... More

The perfect place for watching sunsets! Also the perfect place to take a leisurely walk along Mobile Bay. A rare few sometimes happen upon a Jubilee in the summertime. Bring your camera if there for sunset...it's one of the top places in the US to capture the best pictures!

Fantastic place to stroll at the start of or finish to a fun day in Fairhope. Depending on the season make sure to watch for dolphin as they make their way up the bay chasing mullet.

Great for watching birds, biking, walking, watching sunsets, very well done. We were in a local Bed and Breakfast and walked here. All the shops, bars and restuarants are easily accessed via walking or biking. Very fun town.
