We have traveled in the Caribbean and by far, this beach area is more beautiful and unspoiled. It's wonderful for a sunset drive. Limited parking and beach access but the view alone is worth the drive.

One of the most beautiful beach areas in the world, no matter what month you go. There is limited actual beach access in this area. But anyone can just drive thru.

This is the only beach our family of 6 will go to when we are in town. We get there early in the morning and have the whole shore to ourselves. It’s clean, the water is incredible, and we love searching for wildlife. Definitely recommend...More

We enjoyed some leisurely walking along the beach on both sides. Of course it’s very calm on the land side of the barrier island. We spotted several stingrays about 10 feet from the water’s edge as well as jelly fish, so be careful about wading...More

Love the beautiful beaches, and it's a great place for shell hunting. It's also a beautiful drive from Navarre to Pensecola.

One of the most beautiful beaches I have walked. Soft, white sand, clear blue green water, not many people. We walked at sunset, seeing dolphins in the surf, and then 60-100 stingrays in groups of 2-4 surfing in all the way to the beach, then...More

This is an amazingly beautiful beach and undisturbed dunes. Watch your speed though! They are serious about the speed limit since the birds that nest there travel and feed on the edges of the road.
