Overview

The Pensacola Scenic Bluffs Highway traverses through miles of wetlands supporting a diversity of flora and fauna ending its northern terminus at tidal wetlands where U.S. 90 bridges the Escambia River.

Many visitors to this byway value the variety of natural resources, including towering trees, waterways filled with fish and shellfish, and clay deposits historically used for making bricks. It also features a fascinating history and awe-inspiring ocean outlooks.

Drivers describe the highway as having “Sunday afternoon drive” feel. Families picnic at Gaberonne and lovers watch the moon rise from Bay Bluffs Park overlooking Escambia Bay. Take a journey along the same seashore first explored by Spanish Settler Don Tristan de Luna in 1559 and learn why his ship has remained sunken offshore since that time. Drivers catch a glimpse of Escambia Bay’s scenic vistas from atop giant bluffs that are the highest points along Florida’s entire coastline.
