ABOUT PERDIDO KEY, FLA.
Located on a narrow strip of sugar-white beach, Perdido Key is nestled between Pensacola, Fla. and Orange Beach, Ala. No more than a few hundred yards wide in most places, the key stretches some 16 miles. “Perdido” translates to “lost,” a gift from the Spanish conquistadors who explored the area in the 17(th) century. True to its name, the key encompasses some of the most secluded and pristine beaches on the Gulf Coast. Nearly 60 percent of the island is situated in national or state parks and will remain forever “lost” to overdevelopment. For more information visit: www.VisitPerdido.com.
