Welcome to the beachiest bit of Florida, now you just need to find your spot on the sand and we have all that worked out for you here.
It’s been said that there’s something magical about Pensacola’s beaches. In fact, locals claim that simply stepping on to the sands calms you and none other than USA Today named Pensacola Beach, ‘The Best Beach in Florida’, and went on to name the Gulf Islands National Seashore, ‘Best Florida Attraction’. Get the feeling you should know more?
Pensacola Beach stretches along the Gulf of Mexico for miles and every single one of them is drenched in gleaming white sands. Start with the lively main beaches. They’re lifeguarded and practically made for families, whether your kids are at the sandcastle building or surfing stage.
When you want total escapism, head to Perdido Key. The aptly named ‘lost’ barrier island is a very different Pensacola beach experience, but one you have to try. Come here for the stunning sand dunes and still Gulf waters, then look forward to giving your kids the freedom to play all day if that’s what they need.Find out more at Visit Pensacola
