Pensacola Beach is an awesome area. There are several restaurants that have beach access or water views. There's live music seemingly every night. The beach is unbelievable. Soft, white sand with emerald waters. An absolute must for a laid back beach vacation.

The pier has great fishing at casino beach but the best place is the small pier at the end of the ft Pickens island . It is very deep water and is close to the pass that connects the gulf to Pensacola bay
