The Perdido House is located right on the water with a fantastic view of the Intracoastal Waterway and surrounding white sand. It is, however, not located on the beach itself. The fabulous Johnson Beach, part of Gulf Island National Seashore, is only 1.5 miles away, about 5 minutes by car. The National Seashore is 5 or 6 miles of undeveloped, white sand beach surrounded on one side by the Gulf of Mexico and on the other side by Big Lagoon. To the right of Johnson Beach, there are many high rise, luxury hotels with access to the beach and plenty of people if bikini watching is what you are interested in. Another mile or so to the east is Perdido Key State Park which has board walks leading to another mile or so of totally undeveloped beach located on the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The famous or infamous Florabama Lounge is just down the road.

About 2 miles and 5 minutes by car to the East of Perdido House is
Big Lagoon State Park, which consists of several hundred acres of boat ramps, beaches on Big Lagoon, picnic pavilions, and hiking trails. About 3 blocks to the West of Perdido House, further down Interarity Point, is the Galvez Landing, a public recreation area, where you can launch boats into Perdido Bay. Perdido Bay is a wide expanse of water surrounded by white sand beaches and sprinkled with small sand islands. Just in case you are thirsty or hungry, Hub Stacey's restaurant is located next to Galvez Landing. You can see their menu here. A few more blocks down the road is the original Point Restaurant with great seafood and usually has live bluegrass music on Friday and Saturday nights.

Going West from Galvez Landing by boat will take you to various restaurants with docking facilities such as the famous LuLu's Restaurant owned by Jimmy Buffet's sister and the Alabama Pass. Across from Galvez Landing is
Holiday Harbor Marina and Restaurant. Check out the local specialty (fried mullet). About 400 yards by boat you will be back to Perdido House with its dock. Another 1/8th of a mile east will take you under the Perdido Bridge into Big Lagoon. On the right you can dock at the Oyster Bar and sample their fabulous stuffed grouper. Further to the East is Big Lagoon Park with its amenities. Another 3 or 4 miles down Big Lagoon will take you to the Pensacola Pass and out into the Gulf or over to the famous Fort Pickens Civil War State Park.
