Voted #2 Best Sunset in America!!!

Enjoy a Gulf Coast Sunrise or Sunset!
Nothing beats a white sand Gulf Coast sun show.

Recently, the Perdido Key area was voted #2 Top Sunsets in America as voted by Rand McNally. Wow, what a great compliment for the Pensacola area!

It is my opinion that the sunrises and sunsets along the Gulf Coast are the best in the United States and that there  is no better way to start your day than with a beautiful sunrise along the Gulf Coast.

Whether you are vacationing or are a life long resident, I challenge you to set your alarm and find a spot in paradise to watch the sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico.

In June, the sun rises in Pensacola Beach around 5:45 am. You should be on the beach, at your spot, no later than 5:30 am to catch the full show.  My friend Stacy dubs the time between the first moments of light and the full sunrise "Magic Hour." The colors, clouds, and movement in the sky change rapidly the hour prior to the sun's arrival!

One of my favorite things about Perdido Key, Navarre Beach, and Pensacola Beach at this time of morning is that there are very few people awake and utilizing the beach. It creates such a relaxing and private experience and really allows you to connect with nature.

Especially in the Pensacola area, we are blessed to have several state parks including Fort Pickens, Big Lagoon, and even the Gulf Islands National Seashore which provides miles of protected beaches.

Soak up the first few rays of the morning sun while you walk on white sand beaches looking admiring natures beauty. Look for animals feeding including birds, sting ray, fish, and even dolphin.

Have I convinced you to take your morning jog, coffee, or tired self to the nearest Gulf Coast beach early enough to watch the sun rise?

Thanks and have a great day,
