Just what I wanted - a secluded beach with sugar white sand. We were amazed by the beauty and the wildlife. I saw herons and chased a small shark for a mile down the beach. Perfect place to get away from it all and relax!!

Out of the way. Beautiful beach. Swimming on the gulf or the bay - I prefer the bay and looking for shells on the gulf side. Nice family place..

If you want to be at a beach that feels remote and undiscovered, this is the place to visit. Our family spent a couple days here and found the water to be clearer and less "stingy" than the beach access points along Perdido Key. Although we preferred driving in a ways to the access points further from the main parking... More

Primitive camping is cheap but don't do it! For some reason they make you walk a half a mile in the sand carrying your camping equipment instead of staying where you can unload where it's convenient? Then you have to park another half mile away? The bathrooms and outside showers are conveniently located 2 miles away from the campground! The... More

Great beach with bathroom and shower facilities on the Gulf Shore of Pensacola. Close to NAS Pensacola. Located on Perdido Key and close to Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Johnson Beach is a wonderful place to enjoy the Beach and nature. Beautiful clean white sand beaches, facilities available, nature at its best. One of the best values for your dollar without all the "hype"

This beach is beautiful! There are bathrooms, picnic table areas that are covered that you can reserve and lifeguards. There is a cost per vehicle to enter. We find that it is worth it. The park rangers are so polite and helpful.

Johnson beach is the perfect place to visit to enjoy the beach without the condos. Its one of the few natural beach settings. Great for family photos and a quiet relaxing day on the shore. The white sand beaches are truly beautiful. There is a charge to go to the beach.

Actually hidden is not the right word. Florida has a ton of great beaches, but most tourist zip right past them going to the popular beaches. Johnson Beach is southwest of Pensacola near or a part of the Gulf Island National Seahores area. It is pure white sugar powder sand. You will reach it by going down highway 292 towards... More

We paid $15 fee which was good for 7 days. The beach was quiet. We had lunch there. We stayed about 2 hours at the beach. The facility was nice and clean. The sand was white and soft. The water was little green. After swimming, we drove to see the gulf island which was beautiful.
