Not sure it was worth $2 to walk out and look at water. Great for fishing I guess. Good few of cranes.

Nice location to watch sunrise or sunset. Both a surprise and treat to see dolphins. $2 per person to walk the pier.

We love the pier, the sunset views, and the availability of fishing poles and bait. I enjoy watching the excitement of young people when they see the dolphins close below. Sometimes you can see turtles too. We have visited it often over the years since we are locals and bring our guests there too. It is in a great location... More

The pier is almost a quarter mile long going out into the gulf. You pay $2 per person to walk the pier if you aren't fishing. I think it's $8 if you're fishing and more for bait or rental equipment. We enjoyed watching some of the fishermen fish and the pelicans hanging out to watch. With your receipt you can... More

One of the best spots to watch the sunrise or sunset. The tackle shop sells baits and small snacks as well as pole rentals. Fishing costs $8 and if you just want to stroll the pier it's $2.

A cool little spot to ocean watch, I wouldn't say it's a must-do if you're here in Destin Florida but it's a pretty cool little stroll

There is a $2 fee, but a must do. The veiws are amazing. Fun to watch the people fishing off the Peir and listen to their conversations about the fish and who they sell it to. We saw dolphins off yhe end of the peir and tons of different fish and herrons waiting to get a free dinner.

Costs $2 to walk out on the pier to the end. Good view of dolphin s and other sea life. Not a very long walk. Takes only a little time to visit. Good people watching of beach goers.
