A coastal escape to Gulf Beach

Gulf Beach and Perdido Key lie on a narrow island just off the coast of Florida's western pan handle, close to the Alabama border. For such a small spit of land, there is a surprisingly large swathe of unspoiled white beach. The turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico lap onto the beach, inviting travelers to swim and snorkel. The island is joined onto the mainland by the Perdido Key Drive bridge, and Gulf Beach vacation rentals are a short drive from the live music, museums, and restaurants of Pensacola.

Things to do

A history dating back centuries

This part of Florida is steeped in history, being one of the first places European explorers landed over 450 years ago. Just off the island, the Pensacola Bay has several fascinating 19th-century sea forts including Fort Pickens and Fort Barrancas which you can explore. Pensacola is sometimes called the City of 5 Flags, a reference to the 5 different nations which have ruled over the city since it was founded. If you travel in June, the Fiesta of Five Flags is a riot of color and one of the oldest in the US. Meanwhile, the National Museum of Naval Aviation chronicles the rich aviation history of the region.

Activities

Beach walks and water sports

Lazy days can be spent building up your tan on the beach or swimming in the calm waters close to Gulf Beach vacation rentals, but there are many more activities close to Gulf Beach. Hikers can walk in the Perdido Key State Park, Johnson's Beach National Seashore or the nearby Big Lagoon State Park, admiring the seabirds along the way. These parks are the ideal gateway for embarking on paddleboarding adventures out to sea. If you like fishing, you can cast your line from kayaks to catch redfish, snapper, and grouper near the shore, while charters take sport fishers further out to catch challenging species like marlin, wahoo, and tuna.

Weather

Winter's just as good as summer

With kids off school, it's unsurprising that most tourists visit Gulf Beach and Perdido Key during the summer. It is hot, dry, and one of the best times for fishing and snorkeling in the warm waters. This is when most of the Gulf Beach vacation rentals get booked up. But the winter season is every bit as appealing. This far south, the winter days are warm enough to spend afternoons on the beach or swimming in the sea. With the mild winter temperatures, there are several outdoor concerts, festivals, and events to enjoy as well as excellent seafood restaurants serving up fine local fare.

Natural features

An unspoiled wildlife haven

The miles of coastline along Perdido Key are inhabited by a vast number of shore and migrating bird species. Black skimmers, blue herons, and brown pelicans are not uncommon. During certain times of years, loggerhead turtles haul themselves up onto the protected beaches to nest and periodically, the young hatch and make the perilous journey back into the sea. Sea oats and sea grass back the white sand dunes that are continually changed by the ocean breezes.
