perdido west key wedding locationLocated on a thin strip of land in the extreme northwest corner of the state, Perdido Key and its Perdido Key State Park offer rolling, white-sand dunes and stunning views of the calm Gulf waters. Perdido Key State Park is open for day use from 8 a.m. to sunset. With two parking areas and eight covered pavilions total, Perdido Key State Park is a perfect place to bring the family for a picnic lunch, while enjoying the gentle breezes off the Gulf of Mexico.

Spanish for “lost island,” Perdido Key holds true to its roots as it remains a Southern sanctuary for people and wildlife of all kinds. Stretching along the far western shores of Florida, and the far eastern shores of Alabama, Perdido Key has a unique advantage as the perfect island destination. Tucked away on a narrow strip of land on the extreme western edge of Florida lies Perdido Key, a barrier island bookmarked by rolling, white-sand dunes and stunning views of the calm Gulf waters on its southern border and abundant wetlands, estuaries, and wildlife to its north. It seamlessly combines natural beauty, coastal living, and southern charm. Perdido Key is home to several world-renowned parks such as Johnson Beach at Gulf Islands National Seashore and Perdido Key State Park, They each have their own distinctions and play a role in the coastal ecosystem that has been around for hundreds of years.

Boardwalk Entrance_PK WestA part of Florida’s Emerald Coast and the self-proclaimed Redneck Riviera, Perdido Key boasts the soft, sugar white sand and warm, calm, clear blue waters that define this part of the Gulf coast.  Simply put, the beaches here are spectacular. Perdido Key State Park and Johnson Beach (a part of the Florida District of Gulf Islands National Seashore) offer quiet, peaceful stretches of beach for you to explore and commune with nature.  Since the key is fairly narrow, the beaches are short but that just means it takes less effort to walk to the water.
