    We came back around 6pm to walk to pier because they had some activities for the kids. There was not a lot to do. There were some stands where they had some jewelry and other gift items. Also, you can...  more »

    The spectacular beach. Think TALC sand. Beautiful green sea. Service of bathrooms and showers. Very difficult to park and expensive. The commercial part of the pier, the fair, the worst I saw. Expensive and ugly Chinese nonsense. And very little.

    Pier 60 is lined with vendors on either side of the pier. Most of the stuff is junk, but there were a few that were worth browsing. Lighting is poor, so go before the sun sets. You won't miss much if ...  more »

    Some of the most beautiful sunsets in all of Florida can be seen right here, at Pier 60! There's something here for everyone of all ages. There's restaurants for every taste up and down the strip. We highly recommed The Palm Pavilion. During the summer months, you and the kiddos can watch a movie on the lawn. There's always nightly street entertainment acts which, is always a delight to watch. There's also gift shops up and down the strip as well.

    AWESOME PLACE! This pier has great views of the entire beach. You can pay if you like but not necessary to enter onto the pier. Great photo place for families and couples.

    So beautiful. Just $1 to walk on to the pier. Not too busy. Gorgeous, wild sunset. Tons of exciting birds (pelicans, egrets and more). Saw a family of dolphins (babies included!). Just lovely!

    It's a great place for families. Plenty of street vendors and performers, so there's something for all ages to appreciate. They have a magnificent view of the gulf for seeing the sunsets. They do charge a cover to go the very end of the pier however. But its well worth it for those that like saltwater fishing. Especially for catching grouper.

    This use to be my favorite beach. I had not been back in a couple years and now the sand isn't as soft. They still have the street performers, which is always a treat and some walk-way stands to purchase small Florida based trinkets. I still enjoyed myself, just think the community needs to work on their home.
