Plan your visit
For some, visiting the beach means unwinding on a bed of white sand while listening to the birds’ chirp and the waves crash, for others, visiting the coast translates to adrenaline pumping water sports or maybe an exciting night on the town listening to the vibrant live music scene, ranging from local downhome artists to Grammy award-winning songwriters. While Perdido Key has an exclusive barrier island feel, it is actually in close proximity to many family-friendly attractions, culture & entertainment experiences, and outdoor activities for fun in the sun!
