This and the beach just north of this pier were pleasant

Very chill place, with few visitors, wonderful view of mobile al. And we seen dolphins swimming offshore. It was a nice stop.

We arrived in Fairhope the afternoon of Fathers' Day. We stayed at Emma's BayHouse above the park. We explored the park and pier before enjoy dinner on the pier. The pier was a great place to sit and watch the fish jumping and birds fishing.

The Fairhope Municipal Pier is on the bay 2 blocks from the center of town. With walk ways along the bay, and a public beach adjacent this exemplifies what a great community this is!

Fairhope is a really beautiful little art community. All the resturants, galleries and shops are great. Hotel downtown not so much! Seems like they write their own positive reviews. BEWARE. Great places to stay within a 15 minute scenic drive. Drive 15 minutes and save hundreds! Plenty of free parking everywhere in Fairhope. The arts and crafts festival is a... More

A lovely pier for a nice evening or later afternoon (or early morning!) stroll! Bring a camera and wear comfortable shoes!

When in Fairhope, this is a must. Park your car on top of the bluff and take a walk to the pier overlooking Mobile Bay...you won't regret it. Stroll through the park area, take a walk along the beach, hang an eno and relax, or fish off the pier...there's so much to enjoy!

Took a morning run here and watched the sunset another day. Beautiful place to enjoy. Roses in bloom were so pretty.

We walked out on the Municipal Pier this morning. It is concrete with wooden fence siding. Wooden benches carved as memorials are located on the pier and throughout the park. To go to the pier only is nice. One sees cities across the bay, views over the water, pelicans feeding, people fishing. Also seen are views back at the land... More

Unbelievable view. The gardens are worth going to see (near the water fountain). Lots of photographers and fisherman. Very nice people! There's a restaurant on the pier but we haven't tried it yet.

This is a place that I love to visit when I am in that area of staying at the Grand Hotel. The Beach spot is so nice and spacious. The water is the bluest that you'll ever see. You can walk or run here,rent boats or just sit and have lunch on the benches. I didn't even know until the... More
