Best beach Area I've ever been to. Much better then Hawaii with white sand and warm water. Would recommend for anyone. Cheaper then Hawaii as well with many mainstream options.

This was a very nice clean beach. It is very long and plenty of room to move around. We were there in early April and it was not very busy at all. It has nice sand without many rocks to step on. There are also bars and restaurants right along the beach.

The beaches here are beautiful. The area itself is older with a lot of tired restaurants and a real lack of commercial attractions. This was obviously the place to go years ago before the other beaches East of here were developed. We will go to Destin, Seaside, Rosemary beaches next time instead as the properties are newer with nicer amenities... More

It used to have huge dunes, and I mean HUGE, they are rebuilding them with sea oats so it is recovering after hurricane Ivan. Heres a hint, STAY OFF THE DUNES! I see people all... More

I have traveled all over. The water and beach here is breath taking! We are going to purchase a condo here and retire to one of the most beautiful places on earth. I recommend Pensacola to everyone!
