Pensacola Beach is located on Santa Rosa Island, one of the longest barrier islands in the world. First discovered centuries ago by Spanish conquistadors. Santa Rosa Island offers miles of unspoiled white sand, blue-green water, numerous restaurants, and a taste of history. The Pensacola Beach Pier is one of the longest in the Gulf of Mexico at 1,471 feet. Visitors can access Gulf Islands National Seashore, the nation’s longest stretch of protected seashore, on both sides of Pensacola Beach, making it an ideal spot for biking, snorkeling or kayaking. In summer, visitors are entertained with free concerts four nights a week.
