At 1471 feet long, the new pier on Pensacola Beach
is the longest pier in the Gulf of Mexico. Fishing from the pier is its main attraction, but you can see all kinds of native sea life too. Dolphins, manatee, rays, sharks and various types of crab have been seen in the waters here. The famous white sand Panhandle Beaches
are an irresistible place to stop, relax and enjoy the world around you. If you're a fisherman, you can get everything you need to spend the day right here at the tackle shop on the beginning of the pier. You can buy bait, tackle, coolers, carts, food and beverages; you can even rent a rod. So what can you catch? Cobia, flounder, mackerel, blue fish and tarpon to name a few, and in the months of winter, red fish, drum and sheephead are caught.
