Local Attractions

We will be adding information here about the local attractions…

Its name means “Lost Island” in Spanish, but Perdido Key Beach has been discovered by visitors who enjoy its natural beauty and laid-back style.

Dr. Beach, a.k.a. environmental scientist Stephen Leatherman, Ph.D., has consistently rated Perdido Key in the top 20 beaches in the nation. In fact, 63 percent of this barrier island on Pensacola’s western side is protected from development by the Gulf Islands National Seashore and the State of Florida. Venture to Big Lagoon State Park and check out the view from its 40-foot observation tower and enjoy its nature- and water-related activities on the Intracoastal Waterway.

Known for its out-of-the-ordinary celebrations, Perdido Key is home to a polar bear dip, interstate mullet toss, and an international songwriters festival, among others. While you’re here, be sure to mix a little birdwatching with your golf at Lost Key Golf Club, a designated Audubon Signature Cooperative Sanctuary golf course. You can also enjoy the thrill of military aviation as the Navys’ Blue Angels perform in July for their traditional summer show on Pensacola Beach and in November as they close out their season onboard N.A.S. Pensacola.
