Perdido Key

Perdido Key’s name — bestowed by 17th century Spanish explorers — translates to “Lost Island.” With 16 miles of unspoiled shoreline, a laid-back coastal lifestyle and plenty of stellar accommodations, even today, the island is the perfect place to “get lost.”

Perdido Key is located just a half-hour west of Downtown Pensacola, but this island community has its own distinct flavor. More than 60 percent of the key is set aside in national or state parks, and time tends to be measured in sunsets and sunrises, rather than hours or minutes.

Whether you want to stay in a quaint beachside cottage, a condominium or one of the island’s campgrounds, Perdido Key is the perfect place to get away.
