We live here part of the year. It's very relaxing and friendly. It's not a hangout for wild youth. It's family friendly. Nothing pretentious about it. One of the most beautiful, clean beaches I've seen anywhere in the world. Better than Miami, Hawaii or the Caribbean. If you come when the Blue Angels fly, be prepared for hours of traffic.... More

The beaches are beautiful! Plus most places to park for beach access are free and have bathrooms. Beaches have special dog areas only. The Bay side are less windy and great for small children.

Visited Pensacola for a day trip (stayed in Destin) and I'm glad we did. Had fun! Took walk on boardwalk after eating at the fantastic Flounders restaurant. Would definitely visit Pensacola again to explore more!

I have taken many beach vacations including the Caribbean, St. Kitts was the most recent. However, I would rate this as the best beach I have ever seen. The sand is pure white, does not get hot, and the beaches are wide. Beautiful sand dunes, very clean. Highly recommend visiting Pensacola beach!

I had been to Pensacola Beach once before, but during the winter so was unable to enjoy the complete experience. This time we got there during Spring and it was perfect! Weather was beautiful and warm, and the ocean was mild enough to get into and splash in the waves. Our hotel had a great pool so we hit the... More

This beach is not just my hometown beach, it is truly my favorite beach worldwide! I lived in Hawaii and while I loved Hawaii (brrrrr... those cold waters!) there is just something about the sultry warm crystal clear water, and snow white sand of Pensacola Beach. Lots and lots of natural shore line areas, as well as plenty to do... More
