Pensacola Area Sunset Viewing Spots

Posted on - Laura Bernstien

You’ve been eating, drinking, and touring your way through Pensacola all day and you want to catch the sunset before partaking in Pensacola’s thriving nightlife.  Where should you go?  Here are a few ideas:

Gulf Islands National Seashore, Fort Pickens
Where Pensacola Bay meets the Gulf of Mexico, you’ll find one of the best spots for viewing a sunset.  Head to the tip of Santa Rosa Island for this unique view.

The Bridge Bar and Sunset Lounge
The Bridge Bar is at the foot of the Pensacola Bay Bridge on the Gulf Breeze side.  Here you can enjoy outside decks, creative cocktails, and live music.

Sunset Grille in Perdido Key
Loved for its casual atmosphere, delicious seafood, and fantastic views of the Intracoastal channel, the Sunset Grille is a must.  Don’t just look for the sunset, though.  Dolphins are known to make an appearance in photos taken from this favorite eatery.

Palafox Pier & Yacht Harbor
In addition to having a favorite dog-friendly eatery, the Palafox Pier is also a good spot to catch a gorgeous Florida sunset.  Benches provide a place to relax while you wait for the sunset and Jaco’s Bayfront Bar & Grille make sure that you have food, drinks, and maybe a furry friend to cuddle while you watch the sunset.
