Navarre Beach Pier
Flanked by the Gulf Snorkel Reef, the popular Navarre Beach Pier re-opened in 2010 to much acclaim. It’s by far the longest pier for fishing anywhere along the Gulf of Mexico, stretching an impressive 1,545 feet. It’s where you’ll find locals and in-the-know tourists trying their hand at a big catch. Here, you can fish for Pompano, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel and much more.
Many head to the pier for a romantic stroll during a date to take in the sunset or sunrise and simply to watch the fishermen and women test their luck. It’s also a popular space for outdoor recreation from running to rollerblading. However, much like all of Navarre Beach, the pier is also relatively quiet and peaceful compared to many other Floridian resort towns.
Paradise on the Water
Although taking a chartered boat for fishing is a must when in Navarre Beach, there’s also something beautifully simple about pier fishing. It’s easy, very low cost, and of course, much more pleasant for those who don’t have good sea legs. Whether you’re new to fishing or a pro, you’ll find the perfect spot to cast your line.
For many, the pier re-opening was a sign of Navarre Beach’s secure resort status. It’s a landmark and the heart of the cozy beach town. What will you discover on the pier?
