It's picturesque and a nice walk.

It makes for a great photo. Right across from the Pier Park. Take a stroll and lots of pictures of the emerald water.

Our trip to Panama City Beach was a spur of the moment decision after going to visit an area that was about an hour away. I thought that the pier was beautiful when we started walking towards it and then I was a little hesitant to walk the pier because it was $3 per person and I didn't think that... More

The pier was very neat to walk on. The only reason I didn't put 5 stars was because it does cost $3 a person just to walk on it. It is beautiful though. We also saw a sea turtle swimming in the ocean while we were out there. Lots of fishermen too.

Great place to watch the sunset. There's an admission to be paid. $3.00 for a non fishing person. $3.00 for a senior citizen fishing person. Price includes a Florida fishing license. The pier is 1,500 feet long.

Took a morning walk on the beach. Saw the pier, says it's PCB pier. Figured it was public. But no, $3 just to walk out there. I know it's cheap, but really!! Since when do you have to pay to walk on a pier. I've been to lots of places in Florida and never had to pay. Oh well, lesson... More

What I love about this pier? I love the fact that it is dog friendly! I love that I can take my dog to the beach on the right side of the pier (looking at the pier, on the right). I love that I can come right off the beach and go across the street with my dog and shop... More

parking, showers, easy access to beach and shops, there are also lots of restaurants near by. i have lived here all my life and have always gone here myself or with my family. it does get crowed during spring break but the rest of the year you can find a good spot right by the water.

Great Fishing for the kids, keep them away from end where the Pro's are. Go to the bait shop and rent the rods and reels if you don't have any.

One of the best fishing places I've ever been to. The staff is friendly and helpful. I got a 36 pound King Mackerel last year.
