Natural beauty at its purest in Pensacola Beach

Pensacola Beach is a lively stretch of white sand and clear water, often ranked among the top beaches in the world. Ask any friendly local and they will tell you that you're in the right place for relaxing on the beach, snorkeling in the sea, or catching something fresh and tasty for dinner. A natural setting for both unwinding and letting your hair down, it is particularly prone to parties during spring break, but there's plenty of beach for everyone if solitude is what you're after.

What to do
Nature trail

Pensacola Beach is on Santa Rosa Island, and the area's seclusion from the hubbub of the mainland has created a unique and fun-loving environment. To get the lay of the land, walk the Pensacola Beach Eco Trail, a well-marked nature trail that covers most of the main beach areas and points out interesting plant and animal life in the area.

Water sports

If you're feeling adventurous, try paddle boarding. This sport is extremely popular on Pensacola Beach, and board rentals and lessons are available all over the island. Fishing is also extremely popular, and Pensacola Beach is known as the Red Snapper capital of the world. Reserving a spot on a charter boat is easy, but cast your line from the Pensacola Beach Pier if you want a more casual fishing experience.

Drinks and dining

The region has fantastic sunsets, so make it a point to be outside at dusk. Evenings on the beach are pleasant in Pensacola Beach, but there are also plenty of open-air restaurants and bars with beach views on Portofino Boardwalk. The area's specialty cocktail is called the Bushwacker; this deceptively mild-tasting coconut and chocolate drink can be found in establishments all over the island.

When to visit

On average, Pensacola Beach gets over 300 days of sunshine a year, so there isn't a bad time of year to visit, but the activities available and general mood of the island change somewhat with the seasons. Summer is peak season and is the best time for travelers interested in snorkeling, swimming and paddle boarding. This is also the busiest time of year, and the island is in full party mode.

In fall, the weather becomes too chilly for swimming, but the beaches are quieter, and the humidity is lower. Winter sees lows in the 50s on most days, and the temperature can dip close to freezing on rare occasions. Beach activities are limited mostly to walks in winter, and locals and visitors focus on golf and fishing in their leisure time. Spring is pleasantly warm with open beaches, but the weather has been known to be stormy occasionally and somewhat unpredictable.

Travel information

Getting to Pensacola Beach is simple. The island now has its own airport, Pensacola International Airport (PNS), which sees over 100 flights per day. If you're driving, Pensacola Beach is accessible from 1-10, 1-65, Highway 98 and I-11. Once you're on the island, you can park at your hotel and walk, bike or take the free beach trolley service that runs from late May to late September.

Where to stay

The Island has a mixture of small hotels, larger chains and luxury accommodations, offering short walks to the beach. Rooms in Pensacola Beach hotels with ocean views tend to fill up sooner, so book early.

Via De Luna Drive

You will find a cluster of hotels on this road that runs through the island and joins onto Pensacola Beach Boulevard. The Hilton Pensacola Beach Gulf Front and Margaritaville Beach Hotel both sit along it, offering instant access to the sands.
