About Perdido Key, Florida

Located between Orange Beach, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida, Perdido Key is one of the last remaining places in Florida’s northwest panhandle that is home to untarnished stretches of wilderness. Almost 60 percent of its land is located in state or federal parks.

The islet is 16 miles long but only several hundred yards wide and is characterized by crystal blue waters and snow white beaches. You can access the key via bridges from Florida and Alabama. Since so much of the land is protected, Perdido Key has a long-standing history as one of Florida’s most serene and uncrowded beach locales.

Recreation

With 343 days of sunshine, a median temperature of 75 degrees, and stunning views of white sand dunes against the crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, this hidden retreat offers the best of both worlds: An authentic laid-back lifestyle with the opportunity to engage in year-round outdoor activities. One of the biggest attractions on this islet is Perdido Key State Park. It has eight pavilions, plenty of parking space, and is open between 8 a.m and sunset. Residents often bring their families here for picnics. If you want to go camping or hiking, head across the bridge and visit Big Lagoon State Park on the mainland.

Lifestyle

While you can find charming eateries and eclectic boutiques all over the key, the islet feels somewhat removed from hectic daily life, thereby offering a slower pace when compared to most of Florida. The white, unspoiled sands are rumored to hold buried treasure along the Gulf shoals. Regardless, the setting is one of the most beautiful and natural along the coast. The waves invite activities like diving, surfing and sport fishing while the lagoons and back bays are perfect for water skiing or boating.

Real Estate

Real estate options include waterfront homes, luxurious estates, beachfront condos and vacation homes. Prices can range from $80,000 to 3 million. Two desirable developments include Perdido Key Coves and the Parasol West subdivision. Almost 85 percent of the real estate comprises apartment complexes. The established neighborhoods have residences that were built between 1970 and 1999, but this coastal neighborhood also has a fair share of new construction.
