The beach is terrible compared to NC/SC beaches.

The sand is too soft and fine to walk in. There is no tide so there is never a wet beach to walk... read more

Pensacola beach is one of the best beaches in america. White sand and beautiful blue waters. Miles of beach area to lounge at. I'd suggest wandering away from the crowds and claiming your own private spot.

The sand is too soft and fine to walk in. There is no tide so there is never a wet beach to walk on. The water slopes up to a 2 foot ledge that is hard for older adults to climb. By contrast the NC/SC...More

Water was so clear and beautiful! Perfect weather! Not crowded at all. Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on Ft. Pickens Road.

We travel here during the month of May. During the week there is hardly anyone there; it's quite busy on the week-ends. Plan extra time to get on to the island. A lot of white sand so it's not hot but will give your legs...More

We loved Pensacola beach, the whole place. The beaches were beautiful, the restaurants were amazing. Very nice community. Only thing that could be better is more and better showering and rinsing off spots at the beaches.

Love these white sand beaches! Awesome atmosphere and well behaved crowds. Not rowdy like other beaches. Plenty of rental chairs/umbrellas. Visit the fishing pier for some great photos. Blue Angels home town, you may spot them flying around!

While on business in Pensacola, I took a drive to Pensacola Beach for lunch prior to my flight home. I will definitely travel back to vacation there and enjoy the beautiful area.

It was very pretty. The pier was like 1.25 one time walk on, well worth it we saw a huge sea turtle, manta rays, and a jellyfish. And of course a few small fish and sharks. Fisherman were friendly

Let me see. We Stayed at the RV Park right next to the Crab House, and Flounders. Don’t go to the beach where the big water tower is. There is nothing there. If you go the opposite direction almost to the point it ends... More
