Another fantastic white sugar sand beach on the emerald coast. What can I say, it is gorgeous with many hotels and condos on and off the beach. Also many shops and numerous restaurants with in walking distance. Has a RV park also that looks nice.

I love this beach!! First time visit and I had a blast. We made it just in time for sunset and collected shells on the beach. The water was clear and warm. I will definitely return

None in my family had ever been too Florida, so we decided to come here for Thanksgiving week. A great place! There's no way we were able too see everything. Beautiful beaches, beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Can't wait to return!

I'm not really the top authority on gulf beaches...I am a fan of caribbean beaches and those low hanging palm tress and extremely blue water. With that said however, this was a nice beach with very clear blue water. Is it the prettiest beach I've ever visited? Not by a long shot..but it is just 6 hours from home and... More

This could be one of the most beautiful beaches we've seen in all of Florida if you're coming back and forth since the mid-70s

If you have never experienced the beach in Pensacola Beach your really missing out on one of the most beatiful beaches in the world, I have traveled to thousands of beachs internationally, and Pensacola Beach is so clean and beautiful, you can walk into the gulf and be waist deep for at least 2-3 football fields. Snorkle, collect sea shells,... More

We visited pensacola beach in mid november, weather was good. Visit to beach was very nice, not much crowd. Water was shallow. Overall it was experience with white sand and blue waters. We walked on pire (some $1 have to pay), it was good, many people were fishing there.
