Paradise in Pensacola Beach vacation home rentals

With white sandy beaches set against the clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, you'll be pretty sure you're in paradise. From a boardwalk full of shops and restaurants to an eco-trail you can share with sea turtles, the entire island is full of the laid-back magic that beach vacations are made of. Pick a Pensacola vacation rental on the Gulf or by Pensacola Bay, and end each day with a cold drink in hand, looking out for dolphins, wondering if it's possible to just never leave.

Things to do

Rest assured, history buffs: you won't be bored

Though the Pensacola Beach Pier is a notable fishing post, at 1,470 feet long, it's also one of the longest piers on the Gulf of Mexico. The nearby Pensacola Naval Aviation Museum, just a short drive onto the mainland, might attract any history buffs in your crew, as will Fort Pickens. This ruined pre-Civil War fortress was in use through WWII, and is located in the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Book a Pensacola Beach vacation rental right on the coast to fully experience the area's top attraction: the crystal clear waters of the Gulf.


Activities near Pensacola Beach vacation homes

A stroll along the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk will introduce you and your crew to all the shops and restaurants you'll need, plus an amphitheater featuring live music and regular festivals. Take a free trolley ride around the whole of Santa Ana Island, or book a dolphin-watching tour if the season is right. Opt for a hike or bike ride along the Pensacola Beach Eco-Trail, keeping an eye out for the wildlife that shares the island with visitors, or spend a night under stars and away from your Pensacola Beach vacation rental at 1 of the nearby campsites.


Local weather for your stay in Pensacola Beach vacation homes

Summers in Pensacola Beach are notoriously hot and humid, though that doesn't deter most people—it's still one of the region's peak travel seasons. Late April through May, and September through mid-October bring more moderate temps and smaller crowds, all with conditions that will still let you enjoy a dip in the Gulf. Winter in the Panhandle can be surprisingly chilly, but prices are lower and crowds are practically non-existant. Hurricane season lasts from June through November, so be sure to keep an eye on the forecast.
