Pensacola Beach is the “happy medium” of the three beaches. There is plenty to do, plenty of places to stay, plenty of places to eat, and plenty of beaches for everyone. While not crowded like Destin, it is not boring either, as there is usually activity and a feeling of excitement in the air. There are also lots of different price points for families to choose from while visiting Pensacola.
You can spend more and live luxuriously in Pensacola, or keep it cheap and hang out on the beach, saving money where you can!
Pensacola also has some awesome restaurants like Peg Leg Petes and the Frisky Dolphin that will do a “hook and cook” or “charter cook” as some call it.
Essentially, you come fishing with us, we rip some lips, I clean the fish for you and your party, you take them to the restaurant, and they cook your fresh catch for you! Most restaurants will cook your catch by the pound and for every 1lb of fish you have cooked you typically get 2 sides with the order. It makes for a fantastic fresh meal with friends and family!
Also, if you enjoy nightlife, there are plenty of bars and clubs to check out while you’re in Pensacola Beach. For these reasons in my opinion Pensacola Beach is the most well rounded of the three places. That being said, depending on your needs all three are great options.
I hope this all helps with your decision on where to stay while you visit. Just remember, wherever you decide to stay, I can still take you fishing and we can have a great time on the water!
Hope to see you soon and take you fishing! If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
