The Florida Panhandle includes twenty-five miles of pristine sugar-white sandy beaches along Santa Rosa Island and Perdido Key. The Gulf of Mexico along this shoreline takes on an emerald green color that gives the area its name. Twenty miles of this stretch are part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore and will never be developed. These are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and that's where Pensacola, Pensacola Beach, and Gulf Breeze are located.
From March through November, gamefish migrate along this coast following schools of bait. Gamefish include pompano, cobia, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, false albacore, bluefish, tripletail, jack crevalle, ladyfish, and tarpon.
