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.

My wife and I head to gulf shores twice a year and the State Park Pier is a spot we make sure to go to. I go there to fish, and she usually hangs out and works on her tan. The pier is open 24 hours and the have a restaurant that serves alcohol and has a karaoke stage. It has a family atmosphere and kids are welcome. They also have a full service tackle shop that carries live bait and has anything one would need to fish. It is paud parking and I believe it was $3 for two hours but do yourself a favor and get the nine dollar deal and then your pier admission is free.
Beautiful pier but you have to pay and we left our cash in the hotel room 2 miles away. Next time. We were just happy to be at the beach and got a beautiful sunset on our walk back down the beach!
