WELCOME TO PENSACOLA BEACH and Santa Rosa Island, a place that you, your family and friends can experience all the Florida Gulf Coast has to offer. Pensacola Beach is world famous for its sugar-white sand beaches and emerald-green waters.

Here you’ll find endless opportunities for fun and relaxation. Savor fresh gulf seafood or sip a Bushwacker at our many restaurants and hangouts, take a walk or catch a fish on the Pensacola Beach Pier, or simply relax in the sun and watch your worries float away.

Be sure to check out our Footprints in the Sand Eco Trail where you can learn the secrets of our beautiful white sand, the dangerous journey of sea turtles, learn to identify mysterious sea shells and so much more. Click the tab at the top of the page for more information.

Whether your wish is for solitude – a solitary, sunset scroll down a swath of nearly deserted beach – or for being part of the ongoing celebration that defines the seasons on Pensacola Beach, we have something for every mood and feeling.

Thanks for visiting us. We’ll see you back real soon.
