“Miles of protected beaches”

Gulf Islands National Seashore offers recreation opportunities and preserves natural and historic resources along the Gulf of Mexico barrier islands of Florida and Mississippi. The protected regions include mainland areas and parts of 7 islands. Some islands along the Alabama coast were originally considered for inclusion, but as of 2009, none are part of the National Seashore.

Taking a walk in the Gulf Islands National Seashore with the family, was one of the greatest peaceful experiences I had. After having a busy day with the kids, the beauty of the crystal clear sea water "dancing" at the shore helped us relax. Kids played with a variety of shells they found lying at the white and soft sand. Since it was not crowded, we felt we had a beach of our own!
Truly, the experience takes you to another world. A world of peace and beautiful sunsets! Worth to visit!!

If you’re looking for the most natural, undeveloped beaches to visit, head to the Gulf Islands National Seashore. It actually stretches well across the panhandle, with 12 separate areas, including some beyond the border to the west, and into the Okaloosa area of Fort Walton Beach.

The stretch through Florida covers several historic sites, marshes, and beaches. Many say they’re the prettiest in the entire nation.

You can hike a trail, go bicycling, fishing, boating, even camping and bird watching. There are wooden boardwalks and nature trails, and it’s the kind of area you’ll want to take a little time to explore.

We think it's one of the best Florida Panhandle beaches.
