Perdido is the Spanish word for "lost", and Perdido Key is one of the most aptly named stretches of coastline you'll find in Florida. The beaches of Perdido are pristine and sometimes utterly secluded, and you'll probably lose track of time and your worries here within a few hours. Perdido Key's coastline is an endless line of the most beautiful sugary sand you've ever buried your toes in. Much of the beach and the areas inland and offshore are part of the state park system of protected wetland and estuary, and these protected areas provide a home to many species of wildlife and fragile native plants.
In addition to getting lost in the natural beauty of Perdido Key, there are many exciting, inspiring, and educational things to do here:
-Lost Key Golf Club: Play a round on this Arnold Palmer signature golf course, famously challenging to golfers of all skill levels. Perdido Bay Golf Club is another great golf course option.
- Flora-Bama: This is one of the best known night spots in Florida, famous for fabulous cuisine and excellent live music.
-Sea kayaking: Take a kayak tour of the coastline and find views inaccessible from the shore.
-Big Lagoon State Park: Visit this beautiful state park for hiking, boating, bird watching, and a chance to encounter some of Florida's native species.
-History and culture in Pensacola: Climb to the top of the Pensacola Lighthouse or stop by the Florida State Museum. You can also visit a summer archeological dig open to the public at the University of West Florida.
- Aviation: See an airshow and watch the famous hometown Pensacola Blue Angels.
Visit in November for the Annual Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival, or come at New Years for the annual Polar Bear Dip. At any time of year, the weather here is beautiful and affordable vacation rentals are available.
