The park is huge and has a good combination of natural areas and history. The pass is good for all sections and for multiple days. Well worth it.

We drove through on Via De Luna and went all the way to Navarre. This was so beautiful. There were beautiful white sand dunes with tufts of seagrass throughout. This is a great way to experience the nature in the area on a budget.

We were not disappointed. Mostly pristine beaches, especially Opali Beach. Bathrooms, outdoor showers and drinking water available. Lifeguards present 10-6.

We ventured to the stretch at the end of the road from Perdido Key. It was gorgeous, clean, a short walk, and had decent seashells. Lots of wildlife, from seagulls to herrings and jelly fish and decent fishing. My children enjoyed the white sand and...More

Don't leave Pensacola without going to the National Seashore. It's a protected space of blue sky, white sand and not many people. Walk the beach or one of the trails. In spring is best - not many insects, the birds are nesting and a cool...More

Beautiful area on either side of Pensacola Beach. I actually camped at Fort Pickens State Park within the Gulf Islands National Seashore. All of my encounters with the Rangers and staff were great. I had a few questions about where to get this and that...More

This is a gorgeous area that we got lost and found by accident. We didn’t stay, but it is gorgeous to drive into. I can’t speak to the amenities.
