My wife and I live in Pensacola and always visit when we want a nice little bit of quiet to make the days issues disappear. The beach is unspoiled, the water is inviting and the sunsets are the envy of any camera bug. Please make this a point of interest if you are visiting as you will no doubt agree... More

Wish the road was longer down the island but it leaves miles of unspoiled beaches for the wildlife (ie; beach mouse, seagulls and turtles). You have a fee to enter the park but there are facilities at the main parking lot. Further down there are boardwalks over the dunes to the beach. Very serene.

The beach was pleasantly calm. It was good to have the memories of growing up in Pensacola, and the days of being taken to the beach as a child to Johnson's Beach.

Water a little murky but a good beach. Kids enjoyed it but not as good as Pensacola beach. Take some food, drinks, umbrella, sun block and enjoy! Waves calmer than pb but not as pretty sand or water. Inside state park so a car fee applies but is good for a week.

Fishing was good, was there on 4th of July weekend when there was nowhere to park. Parked in front of the last parking sign where a couple other cars were parked. They came by 5 minutes later and gave everyone $100 parking tickets. Revenue building at it's finest. Will not go back.

if you like crowds, stay away. Johnson beach is like a trip to the beach when you were a kid. great waves, snow white sand, a family place to enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Great beach if you want to get away from the tourist area's..$8.00 peace of paradise. You actually have enough room to spread out and enjoy yourself.

If you are in the area you have to check it out. Beautiful unspoiled beaches...away from the huge crowds. We drove over almost every morning on our recent.

This beach was clean and had great shells. The water was perfect for swimming-the waves were just right.

There were ample changing/rest rooms, lots of parking near the beach and access to some of the most beautiful white sandy beaches I've seen. The fee was $8 a car and that was good for 1 week!!
