We just returned from a week in Perdido Key and enjoyed every minute. We rented condo 801 in the Palacio complex through VRBO. It was a very nice condo with a gorgeous view. The beach was great! It is a nice town just north of Pensacola. It was not very crowded. This is a good place for just relaxing and soaking up the rays. There are a few restaurants, not very many actually on the beach. We had a good time at the Florabama Lounge. I do not recommend the pirate cruise. A few years ago we took the pirate cruise in Panama City Beach and it was a lot better than this one. This is a great place for families.
