The beach area is pretty at sunset. Development though is just down the way as can been in this picture.

Perdido Key State Park is a 247 acre beach park located on Perdido Key on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. The park was established in 1980 and preserves an increasingly rare ecosystem in Florida, a coastal barrier island. Perdido means lost in Spanish and reflects a Spanish history and colonization of the area.
The park beach is clean and the sand has a beautiful white color. Sand dunes are modest in size and are being preserved and stabilized with sea oats. Park facilities are quite limited. A short, level boardwalk leads to the beach. There are some picnic shelters, an outdoor shower and bathrooms. While the ocean vistas are scenic and serene, the park beach is surrounded by development on both the east and west sides and a road parallels the north interior side. Overall, Perdido Key will mainly interest beachgoers, since there is little else to see or do here. If you like to relax at the beach or walk along the surf, this park will have some modest appeal. Also, the breeze is generally strong enough to offer a good kite flying experience.
A unit of the Gulf Islands National Seashore called Rosamond Johnson Beach is located about 5 miles away from the state park and is on Perdido Key. The national seashore has a short nature trail through wetlands and a scrubby forest, extensive undeveloped beaches and the remains of some military batteries known as Fort McRee. The fort area is not actively maintained and is located at the eastern tip of the island. It is only accessible by foot or by boat. If you are looking for larger and better preserved military history sites, head over to Pensacola and check out either Fort Pickens or Fort Barrancas.
