Gulf State Park Fishing Pier attracts avid anglers, as well as tourists interested in seeing marine life. Opened in 2009 to replace the original pier destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004, the newly rebuilt pier features indoor seating and a retail shop for stocking up on bait and tackle. At 470 m (1,540 ft) long, the pier is the largest on the Gulf of Mexico, offering you more space to fish and look for sea life down below. Watch sharks, stingrays, and jellyfish swimming underneath you and keep an eye out for pelicans and cranes flying nearby.
