Perdido Key

The “Lost” Island Worth Discovering


Spanish for "lost island," Perdido Key holds true to its roots as it remains a Southern sanctuary for people and wildlife of all kinds. Stretching along the far western shores of Florida, and the far eastern shores of Alabama, Perdido Key has a unique advantage as the perfect island destination. Tucked away on a narrow strip of land on the extreme western edge of Florida lies Perdido Key, a barrier island bookmarked by rolling, white-sand dunes and stunning views of the calm Gulf waters on its southern border and abundant wetlands, estuaries, and wildlife to its north. It seamlessly combines natural beauty, coastal living, and southern charm.

Perdido Key is home to several world-renowned parks such as Johnson Beach at Gulf Islands National Seashore, Perdido Key State Park, and Big Lagoon State Park. They each have their own distinctions and play a role in the coastal ecosystem that has been around for hundreds of years.



Public beaches with amenities, shops, attractions, and restaurants are available along the barrier island.
