Perdido Key, which means “Lost Key” in Spanish is a narrow strip of white beaches and aquamarine waters where beachcombing, fishing and sailing are ways of life not just recreation choices. Perdido Key’s unspoiled beaches are the island’s main attractions. Undulating wind built sand dunes are dotted with sea oats, bunch grass and beach grass. Venture to the eastern end of the island to the Gulf Islands National Seashore where swimming, snorkeling, fishing, boating, bird watching and hiking are popular pastimes. Tee time, anyone? Two exceptional golf courses are easily accessible, the Perdido Bay Golf Club, a links style course, and Lost Key, a target-style design fashioned by Arnold Palmer designated as an Audubon Signature Cooperative Sanctuary golf course. Other preferred activities on Perdido Key include dolphin watching excursions, moonlight cruises and sailing tours. Perdido Key is also known for its out-of-the-ordinary celebrations such as the New Year’s Polar Bear Dip and the Interstate Mullet Toss. For a non-stop celebration, drop by the legendary Flora-Bama Lounge on Perdido Key, a beachside oyster bar, beach bar and Gulf Coast cultural landmark. Pensacola is located only 15 miles from Perdido Key offering a wealth of day trip options to attractions like Historic Pensacola Village, the National Museum of Naval Aviation, Pensacola Lighthouse and Museum and Fort Pickens, a fort built in 1834 and once occupied by federal troops during the Civil War.

We start by boarding you upon arrival so that you may enjoy our comfy padded seats, and canopied covered boat [sunscreen is optional on our boat]. From the moment we locate the first pod of wild dolphin, until our excursion ends, you'll be amazed by the phenomenal dolphin shows aboard our spacious boat. P.S. We let you keep your shoes on!
We had an excellent time on your tour. We saw plenty of dolphins throughout the trip. Note- where you turn in for the marina, it isn’t signed. It’s essentially under the bridge.

Experience the magic of flight at the National Naval Aviation Museum! See over 4,000 artifacts and 150 aircraft representing Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Aviation. Ride the flight simulators or catch all the drama and power of amazing IMAX films. Dine in the authentic Cubi Bar Cafe and take home the spirit of Naval Aviation with a unique memento from the Flight Deck Store. Spend a cool day inside the Museum and experience Hands-on-History! New Naval Air Station Entrance: All visitors to the National Naval Aviation Museum, Fort Barrancas and Pensacola Lighthouse who do not possess a Department of Defense identification card or are unescorted by the holder of a Department of Defense identification card, will be required to enter the installation via the West Gate located off Blue Angel Parkway.
One of the world's best military aviation museums tracks the history of U.S. Naval aviation from the earliest seaplanes to the 21st Century. Historic artifacts include the NC-4, which became the first aircraft to cross the Atlantic Ocean nearly a decade before Lindbergh's solo nonstop flight. One cautionary note: While GPS guidance may send visitors to the Naval Air Station's main gate, those without Defense Dept. IDs can't enter there. Instead, use NAS Pensacola's West Gate, which is reached via Blue Angels Parkway.

The park offers many activities for outdoor enthusiasts.
There’s nothing wrong with this little state park, but then again there’s really nothing super special about it either. It’s kinda small actually - especially for a place called BIG lagoon - lol. Anyhow, it’s reasonable, it’s got some trails, and some decent camping spots but really it’s kinda just so-so, just being honest. Nice staff and all! Just nothing too special about the place.

Perdido Key's literal translation means “Lost Key,” so named by the early Spanish who discovered it in 1693.

Those who have visited our emerald green waters and sugar white sands will agree that this “Lost” island is definitely worth discovering!
A good home base to guide you through this beach community. Convenient, right on the beach road. We will return.

Arnold Palmer signature course challenges all golfers.
First time playing this course - it is in excellent condition, very challenging, undulating fairways and greens, bunkers aplenty, short hitters could have a tough time with the few forced carries. Aim for the center of the fairway otherwise you could be in trouble!
My wife and I were able to walk on with no reservations and were done in about 3 hours, and that was waiting on the group in front of us. We were told it is very crowded during the winter season when all the snowbirds arrive. The staff is friendly and very welcoming. This is a fun course, bring a few extra golf balls.

We visited Perdido Key last week and I wanted to cook some fish and shrimp in our condo. I heard about Perdido Key Seafood and stopped in for shrimp and tilapia. Fresh, perfect! Pricing is fair. Service was great. Definitely would go back if we come to Perdido Key again!

My husband and I walked in for lunch, three wait staff and no welcome. We must have inconvenienced them from doing nothing. My husband's food was good mine was completely burned. I would have never served a customer crap like that. She saw I couldn't eat it but I was scared to send it back since they were so unfriendly. Poor service and food at lunch. Evening meals have been good in the past. Will never eat lunch there again. If I see any of those staff members I will leave in the future.
