The beach itself is beautiful, but the park needs lots of work. It's busier during the summer months, but for some reason only the restrooms on the west side are open. The water fountain outside of that building is gone and the one on the...More

Locals favorite beach to go in the Pensacola/Perdido Key vacinity. The natural beauty, sugar white sand, and usually crystal clear water (unless there has been storms at sea) make it one of the best beaches in America. Shhh! Don't tell anyone.

quality of the beach is great, which is typical of the beaches in this general vicinity. However, the parking is limited and the beachfront is limited due to the adjoining condos strictly enforcing property rights

You are in Paradise at this National Seashore. Clean bathrooms, showers, covered picnic areas and lifeguards. Better than P beach traffic.

If you are seeking peace and quiet, solitude, few crowds, a closer connection to nature and the Gulf of Mexico drive to the end of the road, park, and walk about a mile and enjoy the day.

This is family friendly, unspoiled sugar white beach. Miles of walking with no cars in site. No development. Could not be better beach.

Johnson Beach is one of my favorite beaches to visit. It is just as beautiful as the other beaches in the area, but it is much more quiet. There are rarely crowds, so it's a nice place to go to relax.

I don't think so. National seashore, like a national park.
