All about Perdido Key
This fingerling of a Florida barrier island is so far west a visitor could practically toss a coconut into Alabama. Perched on the Gulf of Mexico, the laid-back white-sand key features 16 miles of untrammeled natural beauty, with more than 60 percent of the land protected within state and national parks including Perdido Key State Park and Big Lagoon State Park. Along the shores, undulating dunes provide a sanctuary for the Perdido Key beach mouse, an endangered creature that burrows in the fine sands, while over in the bayou, carnivorous plants ensnare bugs within their petal-shrouded gullets. The town of Perdido Key is defined by high-rise condos and resorts, but visitors spend most of their vacations here hiking, kayaking, fishing, and watching gloriously colored sunsets from the patios of casual seafood restaurants.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Perdido Key?
The sun shines over this remote corner of Florida for 343 glorious days a year. Temperatures in the spring and fall tend to hover in the 70s Fahrenheit, making these the ideal months to visit. Meanwhile, highs in July have been known to climb above 90 degrees, while in January the lows can hit the 40s. Still, it’s possible to partake in outdoor excursions year-round, and regardless of when you’re traveling, it’s wise to bring your sunhat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. It goes without saying that you’ll need a sturdy pair of flip-flops. Note that hurricane season begins in June and extends through November.
What are the top things to do in Perdido Key?
Perdido Key State Park
Wander this 247-acre coastal wilderness, admiring its gently sloping dunes, windblown beach grass, and fluffy sea oats, and perhaps take a dip in the emerald-green gulf. Just three miles north of this serene coastal wilderness, you can also explore the neighboring Big Lagoon State Park.
Big Lagoon State Park
A network of boardwalks and hiking trails connects this tranquil amalgam of sandy beaches, salty marshes, scenic ponds, and pine forestlands. Visitors are especially fond of spotting many species of waterfowl and crabbing in the lagoon shallows.
Tarkiln Bay Bayou State Park
If you’ve never seen a carnivorous plant, venture a few miles north of Perdido Key to this bayou, where four species of pitcher plants thrive and trap bugs in their digestive tracts. Boardwalks and trails lead the way through the park’s prairie, coastal, and bayou environs.
