“The stretch from Pensacola Beach to Navarre Beach is a runners, bike riders dream come true!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

You can't ask for a more scenic stretch of miles to walk, run or ride your bike on. The trail in several places comes within feet of the Gulf of Mexico. Extremely scenic, UNTOUCHED, and no houses, condos or hotels for about 10 miles.

Definitely a must see when you are in the area.

“Beautiful, quiet beaches and serene soundside trails”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Visited several locations of this park - both on the sound side and on the gulf beach. The famous sugar sand is just as advertised and these beaches are a well-kept secret based on the small crowds. Many parking areas have facilities and they are well maintained. If you travel with a pet, they are only allowed on a limited section of the beach - watch for signs. The sound-side Naval Live Oaks has several trails, long and short, some boardwalked and some sand so anyone can find a good fit.

“Peaceful beauty!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

On all our trips to "the beach" we always seek out a state park or National Seashore to visit for the quietude and the undeveloped peacefulness. This place was amazing!! Squeaky white sand, warm turquoise water and In August, only a handful of other beach goers. My cheerleader had a fabulous time tumbling on the beach and we all enjoyed the beautiful, clear water and the commune with nature.
