I really underestimated the beauty of Pensacola’s beach. I was highly impressed with the soft powdery white beaches and emerald green waters. Just lovely!

We stayed at a hotel right near the pier but I don't know why it took us until our last day of vacation to walk it. So glad we did! Saw lots of sharks and jellyfish. It was fun to watch the people catching fish....More

We've been enjoying walks down the pier for more than a decade, and vacation just wouldn't be complete without it. If you go during a clear, hot day, make sure to wear lots of sunscreen, as you're subject to the heat of the sun and...More

We Love walking the pier in the mornings with a cup of coffee. It's always fun to talk to the people fishing. This trip we saw sharks, sea turtles and dolphins up close, from the pier. It's a $1.25 per person, but always worth it.

Walked down the pier and ate some ice creme, watching the people and swimmers. Clean area and a nice place to go after lunch to chill and enjoy the ocean.

one can see the gulf from the parking lot along with several fine restaurants around the parking lot, and there are showers for washing off the salt water along with restrooms.

When we were there many personal hammocks were hung under the pier. I didn't ask anyone but it appeared to be a first come first grab issue.
