Pensacola 2001 08:Fort Pickens beaches

Back


Fort Pickens

Fort Pickens is part of the national sea shore along Pensacola coast. It is only about 10 miles from the city but everything in the park is well preserved in their natural state! The beaches here are extremely beautiful and very uncrowded.

It used to be military post and there are a lot of remaining buildings and other tracks to hike around. It has about 100 camping sites. But you have to reserve early in summer since they fill up quickly!

There was a shark attack right on For Pickens beach weeks before we arrive. We did not really have the courage to get into water in afternoon hours! :)
