Perdido Key’s literal translation means “Lost Key,” so named by the early Spanish who discovered it in 1693. Until then, the Key was the well-kept secret of Gulf coast Native Americans – Perdido Key’s first inhabitants. Bridges link Perdido Key to the Florida mainland and neighboring Alabama. Those who make the short drive across the water will agree that this “Lost” island is definitely worth discovering.
