Many different food choices, but the environment was the best. Open out door eateries and bars. You can walk right on to the beach. The atmosphere was carefree! Just like what you want the beach to be.

There is so much to do at the boardwalk so plan to spend an entire day there. The shops, exhibits, eating places, the pier and Pavilions, all overlooking that beautiful white sand and sparkling water will captivate you. A wonderful place to relax!

Perdido Key is about 2 hours west of Okaloosa Island. Perdido Key is even west of Pensacola, only a mile or so from the Alabama line, just across the water from Orange Beach, AL.
