This was our first time here, and we were very pleased with the beach and surroundings. There was some seaweed, but still lots of clear water. The white sand was beautiful!

We had a desire to visit the white sand beaches and chose Pensacola Beach as our destination. Traffic was heavy, but we found plenty of open parking spaces for our mid afternoon arrival. Unfortunately, the water was clouded by seaweed and decreased the enjoyment of...More

If you have never been to Pensacola Beach now is the time to make plans to go. The beaches are well maintained. There are areas at Casino Beach to part near the pier, and places east and west of Casino Beach that you may park....More

I was very impressed with the layout of this area! Yes everyone raves about the white sand, but if you are surrounded by low lifes who wants to stay there with their families. And that's what I ran into on the west coast of Florida...More

When we first arrived we were nervous about all of the cars, but soon realized that there was still plenty of room to have our own area and not be disturbed. Beautiful beach for couples and families.

I think out of all the places, not so many, this place has the best beaches and commodities of all. All up and down they have bath houses, restrooms, showers, etc. White sand and blue water, need I say more?

We are first timers at Pensacola and will be back. I prefer it over some of the other beach areas on the pan handle of Florida.

Miles of sugar white beaches and emerald green water. The beach is completely public and open to all. Mostly families visiting which is nice. Tuesday nights they have bands on the beach for concerts and dancing.

We love Pensacola Beach. The sand is a pure delight, the weather(at least for us) has always been fantastic, and the people are friendly. Loads of things to do (although simple Beach relaxation is not to be overlooked), and everything is so close. We parked...More

Was truly impressed with how much I loved Pensacola Beach. The beach wasn't overly crowded, the tide was kinda rough but not rough enough to keep you out of the water. Since the tropical storm several weeks ago the waters have been a little affected....More
