    Overview

    Overview

    Located on a barrier island along the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, Perdido Key is a day-use area with two sections accommodating up to 75 guests. The soft, white sands of Johnson Beach make a day of grilling and picnicking a perfectly pleasing beach excursion.

    As a part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore, Perdido Key is a protected home to four species of turtles and a booming population of migrating birds. While strolling on the beach, keep an eye out for freshly dug burrows, possibly created by gopher tortoises.

    Natural Features:

    Marshes and sand dunes shape the barrier island, with beach grass and sand pines, providing a colorful contrast to the white sands. Johnson Beach faces the Gulf of Mexico while the northern stretch of island touches the Big Lagoon.

    Recreation:

    Swimming and playing on the beach are the key activities. Bring a shovel and buckets for some sand castle fun. Fishing, hiking and surfing are also available.

    Facilities:

    Both picnic sites have 12 picnic tables with a shared restroom and outdoor rinse-off shower. Electrical outlets are available upon request. Please bring your own grill.

    Nearby Attractions:

    Visit the Tarkiln Bayou Preserve State Park or opt for a round of golf down the road. Perdido Key is a popular resort town, so you'll find some resort-friendly activities like jet ski rentals.

    History buffs will enjoy a visit to Fort McRee, a military fort built in 1839 to defend Pensacola and its harbor.
