I have come here for several years and this is a stunning beach! This year I spent a week in Dauphin Island, AL before driving here. This beach is SO much nicer!

We had a wonderful time visiting this area. There are many choices for dining from fast food to elegant. Wish we would have found the boardwalk sooner, lots to do here. The area is not too crowded like some other beaches.

The whitest beaches in the world!!! The nicest people around. Can get crowded during summer holidays, but May & October are a locals dream. We liked it so much we moved here.

Kid friendly environment with good people and food is plentiful. Be careful not to over eat. Its easy to over eat as all the portions are for 2 or more.

Visted just for the day had a nice beach front lunch, walked the white beach and found some nice shells. What a view when the blue Angels fly by!

We were here last year and the temperature was 55 to 60. Today it is 77. Great ocean breeze on this beautiful beach. Staying at the Holiday Inn resort and it is right on the beach. Recommend Pensacola Beach to anyone looking for a quieter place to enjoy.
