"Perdido", meaning "lost" in Spanish, encompasses federal and state parks abundant with wetlands, estuaries and wildlife. It’s so peaceful, it’s easy to get lost in the beauty. Visitors will find plenty to do in Perdido Key, ranked among the nation’s top 20 beaches by "Dr. Beach," from charter boat fishing and golfing to birdwatching and taking in the scenery.
No more than a few hundred yards wide in most places, Perdido Key beaches stretch some 16 miles, with almost 60 percent of it located in federal or state parks - making it one of the last remaining unblemished stretches of wilderness in the Florida Panhandle.
Bridges link Perdido Key to the Florida mainland, as well as neighboring Alabama. Those who make the short drive across the water will agree that this "Lost" island is definitely worth discovering.
With an average temperature of 75 degrees and 343 days of sunshine, It's not surprising the key is a long-hidden retreat that blends together both year-round outdoor activities and an authentic laid-back lifestyle uniquely its own.
