This beach is not just my hometown beach, it is truly my favorite beach worldwide! I lived in Hawaii and while I loved Hawaii (brrrrr... those cold waters!) there is just something about the sultry warm crystal clear water, and snow white sand of Pensacola Beach.

We love that there is a designated dog beach area. Also, we love the cold days as there are no crowds. Dress a little warmer and you will have the beautiful beach all to your self.

Traveled to many beaches around the world, Pensacola Beach is still our favorite, with the sugar white sands and the emerald green waters. A great place to hangout, relax and take things a little slow!
