We've visited this park a number of times. This location is much quieter and family oriented than other areas of Pensacola Beach, especially the often crowded and alcohol infested main public beach near the "beach ball tower". Here you will discover tons of parking spaces...More

There is a designated snorkeling area that is about 12'-14' deep depending on the tide. Large concrete objects that resemble "whiffle balls" house different types of wildlife. You can Scuba or Snorkel here safely as it is marked off with pylons as a designated area.
