“Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

The beach is absolutely breath taking. The sand is powder white. The water is a turquise blue. It is very relaxing. Bring your book, a beach chair and a cold beverage and you won't have a more relaxing day anywhere.

“Beautiful isolation down the beach, almost out of sight of the high rise condos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

White sand beach with clear water. I could see fish swimming around well over 6 feet below the boat.

“Alot to see and do here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

When visiting Pensacola this is where you should book your hotel. They are a bit pricier but this is where you want to be in Pensacola. Island has great beaches, many restaurants to choose from, kid activities like the zoo, and downtown is ~ 10 minutes away.

Took a beautiful scenic drive along the Gulf several times. You know your on the way when you cross over the three mile bridge.
