This beach is the finest I have visited anywhere in the United States! Clean,white, sugar sandy beaches abound. Family oriented, with VERY few bars in the area! Great family vacation place! No big party groups or stupid, drunk kids!

White sands. Clear blue water. Not crowded in winter. Fishing pier. Not high end, but pleasant and peaceful.

Beautiful beach even in January. As you search Pensacola, just be certain that you search for Pensacola Beach, not just simply Pensacola as that's how some businesses are located and could make a difference. Will definitely be back.

The sand is gorgeous. It is one of the prettiest natural beaches in the country. The town is somewhat charming. I just wish there was a dog friendly property as I prefer traveling with my Havanese. Dogs are not allowed on the beach here.

This has to be one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world. The sand was firm and clean - pure white. The ocean was beautiful, clean and clear, with the most beautiful shades of blue. Unfortunately, it was way too cold to swim or sunbath when we were there but we did have the beach almost to... More

Unfortunately, Florida had a cold snap so we didn't spend a lot of time on the beach. But the sand is the most incredible texture for walking and beautiful sparkling white. We did walk in the water and it was surprisingly warm, although no one was swimming and there were a few surfers in full body wet suites. Fun for... More

On my trans-American charity cycle ride from Miami, FL to San Francisco, CA through the southern states, it is always nice to see and experience the best of what nature has to offer Cycling along this stretch of white sand along the Gulf of Mexico is possibly one of the best beaches I have seen. Highly recommended Enjoy
