    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: It's quite obvious to anyone who has walked one of the Emerald Coast's beaches that the sand here is among the whitest,cleanest and softest in the world. What you may not know,however, is that when you walk
    on the beaches here, you're actually walking on the mountains-the Appalachian Mountains, that is.

    Fondest memory: The sand of beach is comprised mainly of quartz washed
    down from the mountains by teh Apalachicola River,
    160 miles east of Pensacola Beach.It is this quartz, ground to a perfect oval in each grain of sand, that makes the beach 'squeak' when you walk on it.

    Normally, such quartz has a rosy pink tint because of
    its iron oxide coating but the sugary-white quartz teh Emerald Coast lost its coating somewhere along its watery journey thousand of years ago.No one knows exactly how or why.
    What scientist do know, however, it that erosion of these beautiful sugar-sand beaches can be prevented.

    Favorite thing: Enjoy the serenity of the world's whitest beaches. The glow of the emerald water mixed with the burning orange sunset provides a beautiful scene. Because of Pensacola's hitorical signifigance as the first settlement in North America, standing on the beaches you can imagine that you stand where those who first came to the United States stood.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Pensacola Beach is growing and nicely, with better services although a larger grocery store would be a welcomed addition. The Beach is a pleasant close retreat from New Orleans not as far a drive as Destin the usual New Orleans beach resort town. And there are new festivals along with the Greek and Mardi Gras celebrations.
