Beautiful white sands of Pensacola Beach. The area is amazing, and visiting Fort Pickens is a must. The waters were so clear. Everything is in walking distance or a short drive depending on where you stay.

The pier has great fishing at casino beach but the best place is the small pier at the end of the ft Pickens island . It is very deep water and is close to the pass that connects the gulf to Pensacola bay
