The beaches on the way to the fort are beautiful, grills and picnic tables and restrooms also. Paid the 8.00 for week pass, worth it. The Fort was very large and in pretty good shape, rangers were very informative and nice. Took a lunch with us to enjoy after visitng the fort.

Just beautiful to drive through, but if you are looking to stop and photo or walk around, there are very limited places where you can pull in to stop your auto.

Well worth the ride through the park. Best time to go is near dusk. Really enjoyed the views. Did not get a chance to actually visit the beach area due to the weather, but will definitely go back.

A must see! Right here in the US. in our own back yards. We are so impressed that we are now visiting other National Parks. Start with this Park first!

Put the top down and drive along the seaside and take in all the wonderful gulf sounds. A great way to spend a late afternoon ride.

The water at Pensacola Beach is some of the clearest, most gorgeous aqua-colored water you have ever seen. The sand is white and soft, and the water very warm. I enjoyed snorkeling for hours and found many beautiful shells, from lightening whelks to the plentiful and beautiful olive shells. I will certainly return to vacation there.

The state has done a great job of protecting this area. It is very pretty, on both ends of the island. Didn't stop, but was a very pleasant drive.

This is one of the most beautiful beach's you could ever visit. If white sand and clear blue water are your thing this play will not disappoint. There are miles of beach and maybe 20 people on the 4 mile strech we were on it is as though you are on your own private beach. We have visited the Gulf... More
