Living across on the east side of the inlet at Pensacola Pass, I have not ever even been around to the Perdido Key side into the Gulf Island Seashore Johnson Beach! Nearby today, I drove in and explored this jewel. Nice. Highly recommended.

I only live 20 minutes away from this never crowded piece of Paradise. Use a rolling walker and there is a covered pavilion right next to parking lot with wonderful view of water plus shade if I need it. In the off seasons, I am often the only one around enjoying my lunch here! Pensacola Beach is nice, but this... More

You can decided to join the crowd or go further and find a private spot. It makes Miami looks tacky. Just gorgeous waves and beautiful white sand.

If you are expecting to have amenities, than best you stay away from here. Stay on the actual Perdido Beach or the ones in Pensacola or even Orange Beach. IF you don't mind a small area that has basic bathroom facilities, is hosted by a lifeguard and has a shaded board walk of sorts for picnicing, than you will most... More

This is an awesome beach. I go here a lot. I buy a year pass because it is way more cheaper, if you go as much as I do. It is $25.00 or you can buy a week pass for $8.00. All people are welcome. They have a great pavilion place with tons of picnic benches and tables, public bathrooms... More

When I was a boy, 1950-60's, this was a great place to go swimming and fishing. It's grown up and is a bit busy, but you can still find the old places if you want.

Great beach and surrounding area; it's wonderful to learn why the beach is named after such courageous young man. Glad the beach bears his name and he is remembered for his bravery.

This unit off of Perdido Key is a great primitive beach experience. Not a lot of traffic, good snorkeling and swimming. The shower facilities are lacking but if you are staying near by or plan ahead it is not an issue. Much less touristy than Destin area beaches.

If you are looking for a beach with a little more privacy compared to Pensacola, Beach. You have found it. I've been going to Johnson Beach for 20 years. it is a little farther out but has really grown. With restaurant's and pubs. Very nice day out.
