Excellent pier with excellent view of surrounding Gulf and the beaches of Fort Walton's main island. Don't plan on visiting just once. You will be back.

Very long pier with alot of fishermen doing there thing. Cost of $2 to walk the pier but well worth the price. Had restrooms at end of pier also. Went during day and at night. At night had great view of lighted coastline.

Definitely worth a stroll, especially at sunset. Affordable and a nice way to end the day. The emerald coast never disappoints.

For true ocean lovers, this view was breakthtaking. I'd love to have seen more benches for people to enjoy the view, though there were pay commercial binoculars there. At the end of the pier, it was covered with locals fishing. They were friendly but the area there wasn't conducive for sitting down and enjoying the view, which is what I'd... More

Always love walking on the pier to view the beautiful water and beaches at FWB. Last time we were lucky to see someone catch (and release) a big sailfish!

A lovely pier. Great to watch the sunset over the water. Listening to the waves roll in and crash on shore was mesmerizing. I would suggest a visit . My time watching gulls and pelicans was well worth the visit.

Two dollar fee to go on the pier. Often you can look over the sides and see various fish and stingrays, jelly fish in the water. Lots of fishermen up and down the pier reeling in different fish to see. Nice place to just walk out and enjoy the views and the fun of being on the water. Something I... More

We were killing time waiting on the sun to set and decided to walk the pier. It's a great place to take pics of the sunset. Also you never know what you are going to see in the water below you. We saw a huge sea turtle and dolphin swimming near the pier. I would recommend going here if you... More

Love to walk the pier on a daily basis, I seem to always see new sea life every walk. Always fun to watch the fishermen and how they interact. Love the views and great to go out after or before a good rain . Also the cost is $2.00 per person to walk the pier.
