The Lost Key Golf and Beach Club sits on over 400 acres of preserved land located on Perdido Key, Florida. Perdido Key is a thin strip of land that makes up the northwestern most part of Florida, connecting to the Alabama state line. Perdido Key is known for it’s white beaches and beautiful sunsets. Unlike many other beach towns along the gulf coast, Perdido Key has not been overbuilt and there are several areas the public can access the beach front. 

Home to Beautiful White Sandy Beaches

Perdido Key is home to one of the prettiest stretches of beaches along this part of the gulf coast. Johnson Beach, part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore requires a small fee to enter but includes life guards and beautiful beachfront facilities. A raised boardwalk that takes visitors through the pines, dunes and salt marsh. The best feature is the miles of undisturbed beach. There is a two mile long paved road with limited roadside parking but you can walk down the beach to find your perfect spot. 

Perdido Key is also known for its’ great laid back restaurants and bars. The most famous of these is the Flora-Bama Lounge, located directly on the beach at the Florida-Alabama line. Located under the Theo Barrs bridge is the Fisherman’s Corner. It’s a local favorite for seafood. If it’s a beautiful sunset you are looking for, then you have to go to the Sunset Grille. It’s located on the waterfront at Holiday Harbor Marina. Other great restaurants to try are The Jellyfish and Lillian’s Pizza. 

Known for Wonderful Beachcombing and Shelling

Interested in beachcombing and shelling? Perdido Key does not disappoint. Shelling is especially great to do in the fall and winter months once the crowds have died down. The best time to find great seashells is early in the morning, after the night’s high tide has come and gone.  The beach is littered with shells and many other treasures of the sea. Just remember, the early sheller gets the treasures! So be at the beach at sunrise if at all possible. 

If your time at the beach includes golf, then look no further than the Lost Key Golf and Beach Club. It’s the only golf course located directly on the key. It was the first golf course in the State of Florida to be certified as an Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary. The project continues to protect the natural resources of the area while providing an outstanding golf experience. 

The Perfect Place to Catch the Big One

If it’s fishing you are looking for, Perdido Key delivers! Big Lagoon State Park and Johnson’s Beach, part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore, both offer excellent access to the sprawling grass flats on either side of the ICW. The flats are home to speckled trout, redfish and flounder among others. On the gulf side, you can fish from the beach for pompano, whiting, red fish, black drum or even a shark. If it’s deep sea fishing you are looking for, Perdido Key is just a few miles up the road from the largest deep sea fishing fleet on the gulf coast in Orange Beach, Alabama.
