The Gulf Islands National Seashore is a treasure - great white sandy beaches with easy access, lovely views, and abundant sea life. Early morning and late evening we enjoyed the beach in near solitude. Highly recommend visiting in the off season.

A beautiful area to visit and spend the day. Nice white beaches for hiking or just hanging out and enjoying the beach and ocean.

We stopped for a quick trip while staying in Perdido. It has been stormy the past few days and it was unseasonably cold and windy today but the shelling was amazing! We found sand dollars the size of plates!

We stopped at a few different spots to run along the beach, collect seashells and take photographs. The sand is so fine, it's like sugar. The opportunities for pictures are great. This is a very relaxing place and worth a quick side trip.

I did not know it existed until last week and enjoyed it beyond measure. It is a forgotten part of history that I thoroughly enjoyed.

My only regret about this visit is that a half day didn't allow enough time to thoroughly enjoy everything the park had to offer. Fort Pickens alone needs at least two hours to fully experience, and we could've spent another several hours hiking before relaxing...More

One more thing...you can also access Johnson Beach which is part of the seashore easily from Perdido Key. The entrance to that portion is going back towards the Alabama line from Pensacola. Depending on where you are staying... More

I would choose the Langdon Beach Access Road Parking Area with a covered location and bath rooms.
