They comb it every morning, which picks up the trash. Sugar-like sand and calm waters. Parking was abundant since it was off season

Seriously disappointed with the beach and the overall atmosphere with Pensacola Beach. First it was dirty, like garbage, bandaids, and cigarette butts on the beach dirty. Next, it's packed with people. It was uncomfortable having people float past on blow up Shamu whales and bump into you as the waves crash. It didn't have the relaxing beach feel. The whole... More

October weather can go either way here. We are lucky as we have caught a week of sunny and pleasant weather. The beach is kept clean. There is a nice beach on the bay side if one wants a quiet beach with calm waters.

We always love coming to Pensacola Beach. The white sandy beaches and the emerald waters of Pensacola beach are great. It's just a laid back time for us.

Obviously the beaches here are beautiful with crystal clear water and white beaches but you can enjoy them without getting sandy too. The 20 mile drive between Navarre and Pensacola Beach along 399 is a great way to see Gulf Islands National Seashore. You can stop along the way and check out the beaches and take plenty of pictures.

the title says it all. September is the perfect month because the water is still warm and clear and the crowds have thinned.

Favorite beach - white sand, calm water, not crowded and the warm, beautiful gulf. Aaahhhh. I won't vacation at any other U.S. beach. The people are always friendly and it is a great place to relax and unwind.
