|PLAN YOUR TRIP||ATTRACTIONS IN PENSACOLA|
Pensacola Beach is synonymous with Santa Rosa Island, one of the world’s longest (and dare we say most beautiful?) barrier islands. Newly restored, we treasure our coastal character – and our visitors – more than ever.
If you haven’t been to our shores before, prepare to be dazzled by our sugar-white beaches, warm emerald-green waters and gentle breezes. And make sure you carve out at least one or two evenings to view our glorious sunsets or starry Gulf skies.
As for your worries, leave them at home, because this is a place to kick back, relax and rejoice in the best natural beauty that Florida has to offer.
Visitors will always be able to experience Florida as it used to be with Gulf Islands National Seashore flanking Pensacola Beach on each end. This federally protected shoreline is also a favorite spot for ranger-led programs such as snorkeling and barrier island walks.
That gorgeous white sand is made of quartz washed down from the Appalachian Mountains over the centuries.
The white sand is notable for its sound as well as its beauty. It squeaks when you walk through it, which is why locals call it “singing sand.”
Drenched in sunshine, it is little wonder Pensacola Beach is a water wonderland. Getting your feet wet with a variety of adventures appealing to beginners and thrill seekers alike, the fun under our sun presents new and everchanging ways to create favorite vacation memories.
Whether you want a day of smooth sailing, kayaking to secluded coves or your need for speed leads you to wave runners or parasailing, we are equipped to make sure you have a splashing good time. And our fleet of fishing charters, with the sparkling Gulf of Mexico as its backyard, is waiting to provide the angler action you desire.
Landlubbers in the group, or those who want to take a break from the water, will find attractions such as miniature golf, unique shopping, an arcade, go-carts and nature walks. For getting around the island, the old ways are still the best: bare feet or two wheels. Bicycle rentals are available with bikes ranging from single-rider “beach cruisers” to those large enough to seat eight. But if your plans to enjoy the beach’s fresh air include something less active, try Funny Cars, low-speed, electric vehicles that you can’t help but notice on the island.
No matter what you choose, there are plenty of restaurants on Santa Rosa Island offering delectable, local dishes to satisfy the appetite you are sure to work up.
