Best family oriented beach in Pensacola.

This beach is one of the whitest and cleanest beach I have visited. It's a very safe place to go for families to enjoy. This beach is not as crowded as Pensacola Beach.

The park and beach were a blast. The day we visited it was not crowded so you were able to spread out and almost have your own private beach. There are sea turtle nest in this area. The first public access has a wash station to get the sand off when you leave. Great area to fly kites.

I've been blessed in my life to see a lot of beaches throughout the U.S. and world and I always loved those that are sparse of civilization. Johnson beach is one of those that is simply pure white sand, wind and waves. Perfect.

Clean white Sandy beach. What else do you need. Picnic on the beach, walk , run or just lie in the beautiful sunshine.

Johnson's Beach is a real hidden treasure. It is off the beaten path and away from the busy Beaches of the Gulf coast. Great facilities such as restrooms, pavilions and barbecue grills. Good parking area.
