This is a beautiful beach with water like the Caribbean! The sand is white as snow - only problem is if you like to walk or run on the beach. The sand is so soft it makes walking hard, but there is a walking path by the road. A very neat little beach town with great restaurants!

We spent an afternoon here whilst staying at the Holiday Inn Express. The beach was perfect for us and a short walk to the ocean.

There is so much to see and do on Pensacola Beach. They have the most pristine white sand beaches in the US. They are well-maintained and well-patrolled by the local police. There's lots of shopping, restaurants and bars. There's also beachfront hotels on both sides as pensacola Beach it's kind of like an island. It far exceeded my expectations. I... More

We were thrilled to visit this place. My sister, nephew and I had the best time. The free trolley was perfect for us. Felt safe and the folks were friendly.

It's a typical tourist trap. Strapped with over priced shops and ways to pay in at every corner. The best part was the view and the beach. Barring everything else, that's what made it a great place to visit.

This is the most beautiful and fine sand you can find on so many miles around. It is true that Pensacola Beach it's touristic place more than perdido Beach near, you can find in a walk get distance any kind of food and budget to stay, to eat and to shop. If you plan to come I recommend to stay... More

Fine white sand and beautiful emerald sea makes this one of the best looking beaches I have ever seen. It was a quiet spring day when we visited the beach, so there were not too many people around, and the beach was not busy, but I can imagine that in the height of the summer it would get very busy....

One of the best on the coast, lots of white sand and many bars and restaurants all around. You can rent one of the many places on the beach and have a mini-vacation anytime.
