This is the most beautiful beach anywhere. Gorgeous. This was pure heaven for me. This would be great for families. I could spend weeks here. No where else compares.

When you come to Pensacola and want a nice beach that's not too crowded, Santa Rosa provides that. It's not always the case, but in large part, it's beautiful, relaxing, and hard to go wrong

Great place to visit, hang out, vacation. Plenty to do, whether you are looking for tourist activities, bars, restaurants, or solitude on a beautiful beach. The whole family loves this place.

This is one of the prettier areas down in the Pensacola area. It has great views, great people and a down-home feel.

This trip we had one evening that was so nice at the beach, beautiful white sand, low tide and warm waters. The next day there had been storms in the area, stronger tides and a lot of seaweed. We just moved up to Pensacola Beach...More

The island authority in its incompetence made the mistake of dedicating parts of the beach to becoming a dog park but failed to enforce the rules. This mistake has created a section of the beach ( across from 400-500 residences) That is unusable and dangerous...More

Once you get to the Island you will not want to leave. The main beaches are beautiful, the reastaurants are great, the people are nice, and the tourist activities are plentiful.

They continue to pack more development into the main beach area but a very short drive will take you to wide open sugar sands. Go a few miles from the "tourist" are and the Gulf Islands National seashore beckons.

This is a wonderfully relaxing beach with pristine white sand. There are so many activities for all age ranges. The quiet water beach by Alvin's island is excellent for small children to enjoy the beach setting without the wind and crashing waves.

There are plenty of hotels at each end of the Island. There are a few at Navarre Beach, including one new one, Springhill Suites. There are quite a few hotel options on the other end of the Island at Pensacola Beach.

This should be no problem, and with Labor Day being gone the prices drop drastically. Goggle rental agents in Escambia County Florida. There will be many listed that can handle what you are looking for to rent. Pensacola... More
