“The dunes are coming back!”

Pensacola Beach Public Relations Coordinator, Susi Robichaux is speaking of the ongoing rejuvenation of the town’s 13-kilometre beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Describing her new Footprints in the Sand- Eco-Trail, Susi conjures images of fledgling pelicans learning to fly and protecting baby turtles struggling from nest to sea. Thirty-nine trail markers at 29 locations tell stories of the quartz sand, the exotic sea creature shells we find and other seaside secrets. New dune grass and sea oats shelter the habitat for waterfowl and Susi’s turtles.

Bordered on either end by the Gulf Islands National Seashore, Pensacola Beach routinely ranks in the world’s top 25 beaches, winning TripAdvisor’s 2013 Travelers’ Choice Award. These reflect the beauty of the beach as well as visitors’ appreciation of the nearly limitless opportunities for fun and relaxation.

Fresh Gulf seafood tops the list for foodies; the deceptive and aptly-named local Bushwhacker is the drink of choice at sunset. Diving, snorkelling, biking, parasailing and fishing venues abound. Stroll the boardwalk for souvenirs, local art or necessities. Fish from the Pier, or simply relax in the sun and people-watch.

Susi again. “I spend hours walking the beach . . . listening to the breeze, the singing sound sand makes underfoot, admiring the majesty of the Gulf. Add a beautiful sunset with a Bushwhacker and you have bliss!”
