Gulf Islands National Seashore

Discover the best part of north Florida as you visit the Gulf Islands National Seashore, a federally protected seashore in the Florida Panhandle.  Comprised of Pensacola Beach, Perdido Key and three historic forts designed to fortify Pensacola Harbor, this national seashore has won USA Today readers’ choice distinction of “Florida’s Best Beach,” and some even claim the white sand speaks back to you.

The Seashore provides endless opportunity for relaxation with miles of unparalleled views. With a thriving ecosystem of diverse marine wildlife, spend the day exploring the great outdoors. Birdwatch and spy on the great blue herons or watch the Dolphins, sea turtles and stingrays swimming near the shore. For adventure enthusiasts, the GINS offers a wide range of recreational activities including snorkeling, kayaking, boating, fishing, wildlife viewing, biking, fort tours, and ranger-led programs.

Visit Fort Pickens, Fort McRee, and Fort Barrancas for a unique look into the military significance of Pensacola going back before the American Revolution.
