More public beach access points will soon be available in Perdido Key.
Escambia County has been given the green light from the Crab Trap Restaurant for beachgoers to use the 200 feet behind the business.
In addition, a 300-foot strip of land on the west end of Perdido Key, owned by the county since 2013 and vacant and blocked off since its purchase, has only been accessible to nearby condo owners.
However, the Florida Department of Environmental Management has issued a construction permit for 35 parking spaces, including handicapped spots.
Existing beach accesses in Perdido Key are situated along the beach highway just east of Perdido Key State Park. Other beach accesses are available at Big Lagoon State Park and Johnson Beach and Opal Beach in Gulf Islands National Seashore.
In addition to the Crab Trap Restaurant, Perdido Key is home to the iconic Flora-Bama Lounge & Package Store, where you can do everything from sip a cool, creamy Bushwacker to toss a mullet to go to church on Sunday morning.
Other fun places to visit on what is known as “Lost Key” include the Perdido Key State Park, where you’ll find rolling white sand dunes, beautiful views of emerald-green Gulf waters and stunning sunsets.
