Perdido Key- Best Wildlife Destination of the Year
Perdido Key, a few may know, is filled with hidden treasures throughout the island. The area is also known as a hidden treasure in itself. In 2017, the “lost key” was found and recognized on a global scale as the beautiful treasure it truly is. The Luxury Travel Guide recognized Perdido Key as the Wildlife Destination of the year for 2017. With the area being covered with 60 percent protected parklands, the prestigious and highly experienced judges from the U.K. wanted to share our little piece of lost treasure with the world.
The locals, visitors, and people who admire the Perdido Area are to be thanked for this extraordinary award. Without the stunning images of our nature preserves, trails, and wildlife both on land and sea; the beauty and uniqueness of Perdido may have gone unrecognized. Due to the extravagant online presence of beautiful shared photos and stories; Perdido Key has grown within the past year to become one of the most desirable wildlife destinations in the world.
