“One of the most beautiful places on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

On busy days, the traffice can get bad b/c the island is narrow and the road is one lane each way. Small price to pay for such beauty.

“Nice drive.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We drove to both ends of the national seashore. Very scenic and there are some nice beaches. Its pretty with the sand blowing across the road, looks like snow almost.

Our family loved driving the Seashore. My husband biked it each morning. Saw birds and an armadillo. Water was beautiful. A must visit!

Very nice and slow paced. A great place to kill some time and take in the beauty. I will be back again.

“National Treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We were so happy to find this National Seashore in Perdido Key. We didn't realize that this is the same Gulf Islands system as the one we visited in Biloxi Mississippi, Ship Island which we truly enjoyed.
The Island is perfect, untouched, secluded and completely unspoiled. We parked at the furthest boardwalk area and walked a few steps to the beach which we had nearly to ourselves.
We brought a cooler and beach necessities for an entire day of fun. The $8 pass is good for one week and also allows entrance into Ft Pickens in Pensacola. Impossible to beat that deal, and we will be back!!
