Great place to swim and sightsee.

The waves were nice. The crowd was not to large and you had plenty of space to swim. Parking was easy and close to the breach. I look forward to swimming here again.

Lovely beach with a long,sturdy pier. Great place to watch the sunrise/sunset. There are also lots of people who fish from the pier. Not sure what they catch!

Beautiful pier. Great fishing and you can rent fishing gear after buying a license. The staff are very friendly at the pier. I went during the winter and it was just as beautiful as ever.

The beach is always too crowded and the traffic in the afternoons is bumper to bumper trying to get out of there but still, all in all it isn't a BAD place...I just suggest going on a weekday because weekends the place is packed.

A great way to spend an hour or two. Saw lots of fishermen, interesting to warch. Great place to view the horizon, clear water and white sands that make Pensacola so memorable.

We went on the pier to look but ended up getting poles and fishing. Great place to visit all day. The people are very nice and the wind makes you forget how hot it is. The fries are wonderful. You can come and go from the beach with a all day pass.

It costs 1.25 per person to walk out onto the pier. While walking we spotted 2 sea turtles, a few stingrays, and several large fish (not sure what they were). Lots of people fishing and several were reeling in fish (mostly smaller ones that we saw). Nice for a family walk out to the end of the pier after dinner.... More

My friend and I chose Pensacola because it is the closet to home. It was a nice experience, we ate ice cream cones and walked around after we laid out on the beach and sampled(swim) the water. My friend is an ocean swimmer as he was born near the ocean, and me on the other hand, I am not a... More

Just to the right of the Pensacola Beach water tower as you approach the beach. Pay for a fishing or walking only wrist band at the booth on the right at the base of the pier - its about $1.25 to walk until midnight so it is a super deal. the pier is a super wide, very solid pier extending...
