An amazing summer destination! Just love love love this beach! We stayed in casino beach where the waves were just music to my ears! At sunset, we stayed in Quietwater so the boys can just wade, catch some hermit crabs, get fishes to nibble their feet and just bask in the sunset. We stayed in a hotel 20 mins away... More

My son had never seen such beautiful water and the waves are awesome. The sand is so clean and beautiful. We are use to the Gulf Coast and this is no comparison.

I enjoy this area due to the dining choices and the great beaches. To bad the rental choices are limited and this raises the prices to a level that is to high.

Wind usually blows on shore to help cool things down. At least it's not a dry heat! From Pensacola take the 3-mile bridge to Gulf Breeze and... More

We visited Pensacola Beach during the week. The beaches were not crowded at all. We went down Ft. Pickens Rd almost to the end on the left was an access. It was actually a dog beach which made it even more fun for us! Beautiful white sand and clear blue/green water. Wish we had invested in a boogie board to... More

We are always more than satisfied with beach life in Pensacola. The water is gorgeous and there are white sandy beaches. There is so much to do, many restaurants to visit, and you might get lucky enough to catch a Blue Angels practice!

Pensacola Beach is definitely my happy place. I went with my sister and our week there was like a dream. I lived there when I was a lot younger, my first freedom from home in Atlanta, and they were the best years of my life. This was meant to be a memory trip, and it was, but it was also... More
