This beach is very well taken care of. Nice facilities. Had a small picnic at one of the pavilions. Water is beautiful here. Not crowded.

Love this beach for it's beautiful white sand, clear turquois water located on Perdido Key in Pensacola, Florida. It is a very un-crowded beach in the Gulf Islands National Seashore Park with a nature trail, beach walkovers to protect wildlife and miles of sandy beaches on the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway. Restrooms with showers, grills and plenty... More

It is a beautiful place. Great beach, clean sand, calm water. Great facilities also. I go there every time I am in the area and will continue to go back.

This is the only beach I go to in Pensacola. It is quiet, peaceful, and very relaxing. If you want to listen to music, it can be your own music. Not some stranger two feet from you. Top notch! Beautiful!

If you're looking for where the locals go, then head to Johnson Beach. It is part of the state park system, which means there is a cost associated to entering the beach, but it includes clean bathrooms, showers, lifeguards (depending on time of year), access to the gulf and the intercoastal, and very clean beaches. The small cost makes it... More

This beach offers all you want. Great water, convenient parking and restroom facilities. Life guard station is there to look out for everyone. The beach is not over crowded so you don't have to fight for a spot.

Very quiet, lots of shells, great fishing, and clean. I can't say there was anything I disliked. There is plenty of nature. You have the best of the Gulf and the Inter Coastal waters

If you want to spend some time on a beach that is one on one with nature, this is a good place to start. It does not have much in the way of facilities but makes up for it in beauty. Make sure you obey all the rules to avoid all the hassels associated with breaking Federal Park rules. Pack... More
