This part of the Gulf is very peaceful and laid back. Not a lot of crowds and plenty of restrooms and picnic areas.

I had the pleasure of visiting the Fort Pickens, Santa Rosa and Perdido Key areas for one day each. The cost was only $8 for a seven-day vehicle pass good for all three areas. This is the perfect place to appreciate wildlife and nature. The drives alone were breathtaking, with water on both sides of the road. The speed limits... More

It's a quiet peaceful drive through the National Seashore district. We were there on a drizzly day but still were able to enjoy a walk on the beach viewing the Gulf.

This was an unexpected surprise. The drive through the park is slow but enjoyable. It quiet and clean. Highly recommended to drive through this park even if you don't spend time in the water.

This is a nice drive out to Fort Pickens. The charge is only $3 per person or $8 per car and at the end you can tour Fort Pickens. It is an enjoyable drive you need to take your time and not hurry. The views are good and there are several picnic and camping areas in the park. Great family... More

After spending time on the noisy, busy, somewhat crowded part of the beach, it was wonderful to drive down to the peaceful, undeveloped area. It's good to have a combination of being at the beach AND getting away from it all. [There ARE bathrooms, however! ;-)]

I stayed three nights at the Fort Pickens campground, and spent the days at the beaches. Langdon Beach was wonderful, especially in the early morning before the park opens to non campers. I watched a blue heron catching fish, dolphins, ospreys, ghost crabs in the sand, even a stingray. there were birds everywhere. Even after the park opened, the beaches... More

All the reviews are spot on! This is the place to go for families. Langdon Beach is outstanding! Not crowded, so clean, shower/restroom facilities, lifeguard and a picnic area...so much better than going to beach in Pensacola Beach. (We had to meet people there our first day and it was awful! Crowded doesn't begin to describe...) Bring a cooler with... More

We spent a few glorious days here! When you get to the post pay the $8 for the week pass! It's SO worth it. Day 1 we drove all the way to the end to see Ft. Pickens and then made our way back around to Langdon Beach. If you are a family with children this is a beach for... More
