I've been to beaches all around the world and this one is in my top 3 most beautiful. The water is always a beautiful emerald green and crystal clear. The sand is like walking on sugar.

The sand is crazy white and super-soft. Lots to do in the area; great restaurants and friendly folks. Trolley service is excellent and there are several great activities. It's a wonderful vacation that gives you the ability to see the Gulf and the Bay.

I have visited this beach since I was a child every single summer. When I was offered a job here 20 years ago, I thought it might be a joke! We moved here, and love it more every single day!

If you are looking for beach time without all the crowds and touristy junk, then look no further. Beaches are sugar like white sand. Emerald colored waters.

By far one of the best beaches that I have been to. It has a sunrise that you just can not beat. Crystal clear waters that you can relax in and just enjoy your day. I will be visiting again for sure.

Beautiful sugar white sands meet emerald seas at Pensacola Beach. In the off season, you can relax and enjoy the waves, watch dolphins and hunt for shells along the coast. Would definitely recommend.
