Great beach in National Park ( tip...go on Mon or Tues no charge). Beautiful, white sand beach without "towers" in background like Gulf Shores. Go past the pavilion and park along the road and walk in on one of the boardwalks. Can go back to pavilion area if need restrooms Nice shelling and found some starfish. Nice area for surf... More

Get away from the crowds at Pensacola Beach or Gulf Shores beaches. However, be aware that there is only the beach itself, and not the numerous concessions at the more popular beaches. Less people, and walking down the beach you have it all to yourself.

This beach is a state park and is a very pleasant relaxing beach to go to. My wife and I enjoy walking this beach and often we are accompanied by dolphins swimming out in the Gulf. It is beautiful and has nice pavilions that you can set up a meal and invite your friends to join you.

I spent a lot of time here during 2 tours of duty at a nearby Naval Technical Training Center. With my house in Pensacola only a short drive to this beach, I would come early in the morning to catch catfish in the surf, or do some running along the waterline. Pretty phenomenal. If you're the type to find solace... More

The pristine white sands and the wildlife are second to none. The fishing and swimming are wonderful and the park rangers are the best.

Johnson Beach is a beautiful, secluded part of the National Seashore. The coolest part about Johnson Beach is that it narrows significantly at the end so that you can clearly see the Intercoastal Waterway (the Bay side) on your left and the Gulf of Mexico (the beach side) on your right. What a view! I've been at least a dozen... More

This beach is beautiful, the picnic and changing facilities are nice. It was too cool to swim, but flying kites was great. Driving on down the road provides opportunities to opportuities to walk over the dunes on boardwalks to the gulf on one side and the calmer intercoastal water on the other.
